Spring leaf drop

Spring leaf drop

Some broad-leaved evergreens, such as holly, drop their oldest set of leaves in the spring as new growth begins. A sudden yellowing of the oldest leaves occurs uniformly from top to bottom. The leaves at the branch tips remain green and healthy. Once the yellowed leaves drop off, no further yellowing and leaf drop occur.
