Hi, I have a new Annabelle, I think it was planted back in June and was initially doing great. We didn't have much of a summer to begin with, it basically rained for two months straight.

Also, the rocks and close gravel driveway (is that what that is?) are likely making that spot warmer than other areas in your yard. I still think the Annabelle will be ok, you just need to keep it well watered until it gets established. Water it deeply at least once a week unless you've had some heavy rains.
