We planted 2 dwarf (burford) hollies in mid March. Many of the leaves are now turning brown and dropping off the plants. Wondering about the cause.......too much shade, too much water, etc.? Any help would be appreciated.

Here are two photos of the pair of dwarf hollys. They get little direct sun in this location, which may be the problem....don't know. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc would be appreciated. We just mulched the area, so the leaves that have fallen are covered by the mulch.

Don't have an answer but am paying attention as I've been thinking about buying some dwarf bufords in the fall.

I'll be at some garden centers today or tomorrow so will ask around.

What kind of sun, water, and anything else you can tell us?

Would not enough light cause this problem? They get no direct sun.

They definitely need some sun. Not necessarily full sun, but gotta have some.
