My Moonlight Magic has green spots on the leaves and they are dropping rapidly. What can I do?

Did it recently get hot and dry where you live?

Newly planted shrubs and trees really need extra water their first summer in the ground; especially when flowering. Give it a good soaking in the morning and, when the temperatures are hot and windy, an extra watering in the evening. In the evening, try to just water the base of the plant. Avoid watering the foliage at night as it can cause spots on the leaves.

Thanks for writing!
