Pitiful Pearl

I mentioned in my last post that my new little red shrubby replaced a spirea that I probably killed. This spirea:

"What did I do to deserve this?"
 In this picture, you see where I have transplanted my apparently dead little shrub. But maybe it's only mostly dead, which would make it slightly alive! This probably unreasonable optimism has led me to giving it a second chance in a sunnier location, hoping that next spring will see it leafing out anew.

Is this as pointless as appears?  Anyone know?

  1. It's amazing how tough some shrubs can be; it may come back from the roots. Anyway, what's the worst that could happen? It will turn out to be dead after all.Genie in Idaho
