    It is normal for them to lose leaves once you bring them in. They go into a dormant state. Changing the pot before doing so may have been the wrong move, though. They need all the energy they can store up before entering their semi-dormant state, and interrupting this process can result in the death of the shrub.

    The only thing that you can do, until Spring, is to only water it once it is COMPLETELY DRY down to almost the bottom of the container. Only water a few spoonfuls, or a level cup of water at most when you do water.

    In Spring, you can cut back all of the dead growth, and wait to see if it had stored enough energy to come back.

    So the shares have been cut returned to floor degree and every year new stocks discover their manner out. Now it's so very crowded. Plant one or of those again into the original spot and move, or pot up the others, It turned into blooming once I left however now all the blooms have fallen off.
