Hello! This is my 7 year old Chinese Elm.. I live in FL, very hot and pretty humid this year. Oct. has been rainy tho.
As of late, my beloved elm was thriving beautifully. New growth, bright green leaves etc. last week I came out to my lanai (screened patio with clear roof) to check him and his leaves were turning yellowy brown?? Some looked a little crispy and curling up but they are all still firmly attached.
I’ve done a scratch test, all branches & trunk are nice and green underneath but the leaves are worrisome.
Is he going into dormancy?? Did he get scorched? What is happening. Someone Pleaseee help!! Need advice. Thank you!!!
*those are egg shells on top of soil btw.

Does not look good. My leaves are still green in zone 6.
