Hey everyone! I dug it up today and the plant was pretty wet. It wasn’t full of water but the soil was really wet. It’s a clay soil. Although it’s not rained for quite some time now, so not sure why it’s still wet. I dug it out, added lots of compost and have put it back in. I guess I just need to wait and see if it survives? The roots are white, so trying to be optimistic!
i suspect the root ball was dry when you planted it.
Suggest you dig it up.
Put in a bucket of water to soak then replant and water soil.
It should survive...they are normally pretty bomb proof.
At least you know why it was dropping the leaves...thanks for getting back to us all.
Rather amazing it was sitting with its feet in water after this dry spell.
Maybe it should be mound planted.
I have normally found evergreen Euonymus tough as old boots.... but a bit slow at first.
Hope it survives now.
