Q.Why is my young Ninebark shrub dropping its leaves?
In July I planted a Ninebark shrub. The shrub is in a good sunny spot with well draining garden soil. The problem I’m having is that it’s slowly loosing leaves. Should I be worried?

Summer is not a good time to plant things like this. It is likely having a really hard time trying to acclimate to the soil, out of season. Other than caring for it as it needs, there is nothing that you can really do to help it, other than providing temporary shade in the afternoon.
