The thing of it is, I LIKE the darker color - it looks especially good on
'Snow Cap'.  I think I will add a little iron to see if I can maintain the
hue.  There is a product called 'chelated iron' which I use to acidify the
soil for azaleas...do you think a little of this would do any harm, as long
as I didn't lower the soil pH drastically?
