Answer: Dropping all the leaves is not normal, but it could be simply showing some transplant stress. I'd give it another 2-3 weeks to recover and begin producing new leaves. If it does not, it should be replaced. When trees and shrubs are planted in the landscape they often go through an adjustment period. Soils, exposure to sunshine, even air temperatures can be different than what it is used to. It sometimes takes a full growing season for the roots to become established and for the tree to begin growing. I wouldn't wait all summer for signs of growth, but I would give it another 2-3 weeks. Hope it snaps out of its doldrums!
