I planted this shrub last autumn. It flowered in the spring, but now some of the top leaves look dried and wilted. The leaves at the bottom are turning red and gold. We have had a very wet spring here in the NW and I didnt think it necessary to water in the present dry spell. However, I wonder if I should now do this or could there be anything else wrong.

I have an Amelanchier Lamarckii and although it doesn't look wilted the leaves are turning a brilliant orange. I was given to understand that this was supposed to happen in the autumn. Any ideas anyone?

I have checked with the RHS and they suggest it is an establishment problem. This was a container grown plant and they say you should dig it up and make sure the roots are spread out and able to take up water. As I also have it near a hedge and the lawn they say to water well in dry spells until the plant is established.
