Caption: Iron-deficient leaf. Leaf of a hydrangea (Hydrangea sp.) showing symptoms of iron deficiency. The lightening of the leaf (chlorosis) is due to a lack of the green pigment chlorophyll. The spaces between the veins pale first, but in severe cases the entire leaf may turn pale yellow and die. This prevents photosynthesis, and the entire plant may die as a result. Iron deficiency can be caused by a straightforward lack of minerals in the soil, or by a high soil pH (high alkalinity), which makes the iron unavailable. Treatment involves supplying the plant with extra iron and reducing the pH of the soil.
