The soil that I used to backfill is not hard. Its a mix of sand and organic matter. Well draining. Its the same soil thats around the other 14 burning bushes, and they are thriving.

What was the weather like a month ago when planted. 'Transplant shock', in this heat isn't easily overcome with a bunch of water. It will be fine next spring, if nothing else goes wrong.

Here too. I put off planting anything, until a few weeks ago, and that was an area mostly shade and water every day. Afternoon sun, however. We will now resume our normal planting time. Clients who want to plant in the dead of summer, find someone else, then they watch them die.

Kelp will help with transplant stress and heat and would be good to add to your watering can

this is what happens this time of year with trees and shrubs in nurseries that have been watered too much, they need a little food to make it through the stress

Adding N to northern shrubs just b4 dormancy, could create a problem. Find out why kelp is good.

This looks like it is burnt and it looks like it is drying out.
When a plant is sitting in water it can't take it in.
The symptoms are the same for not enough water as they are for too much.
The tips start drying first.Dig it up see if there is water in the hole.
If it is then replant in another location.If it is too dry then post a photo of the root system. It most likely would be in the same shape as the pot you pulled it out of.

Ok so I looked at the bush today. Its getting worse. More brown on the leaves. The tips of the light brown leafs are stiff and curled over. This makes it sound like its bone dry, but its not. I checked the soil and its well draining. I have been giving it a good drink every day and the soil is not saturated nor is there any standing water.
