Red Chokeberry

mainegard3(5b-6a)October 10, 2010

I have a new red chokeberry that is doing well that was planted in the summer. The weather in maine was dry and hot. In late september the 20 or so leaves it had, some turned red but not a real show. Now the leaves are all gone. Should I expect more of a show as everyone has mentioned once the shrub matures and has more leaves? I guess I wasn't expecting premature leaf drop considering many leaves were still green.

I forgot to mention that there were a few berries on the shrub that never turned red. Now they are gone. Again, I suspect the shrub is not esablished yet.
