I brought a seemingly healthy "Little Henry Itea home from the nursery and planted it about 3-4 weeks ago. It is in a site receiving about 5 hours full sun/day. I am uploading photos in hopes you can suggest the problem my shrub is having. Some leaves drying and curling, brown spots on falling leaves. White powder. I do not believe it's an issue related to water/moisture level. I applied some Safer insecticide spray and a little fungicide in the morning today.

I do not know what the problem is, it looks to me like some pathogen, fungi probably.

Major problem with fungal or bacterial infections with plants is that it does not work really like with animals, when you see the first signs of white powder, yellow powder, rusting, etc you have to act with a fungicide rather than think it is something that the plant can get over. For some this would seem like over-reacting and would say no intervention needed, but who wants their plant to lose all it's leaves for the entire year or even worse to be a source of further infection for other plants.
