Dead and Dying

The demise of my Ilex Crenata Helleri Holly bushes are near complete, and I didn't even see it coming. These were newly planted in early-May, and since we had a very wet Spring I was not in the habit of watering my new installations. The month of July was dry with about a 4wk period of no rain, resulting in a death spiral for these shrubs, and I just didn't see it coming. I am now in the midst of doing an Intervention to try to save some of the other Ilex Crenatas, and I hope it's not too late for them to recover.
