Spots on Golden Carousel Barberry

Asked July 15, 2014, 12:47 PM EDT

I planted three Golden Carousel Barberry this year. They are close to and are shaded by a pine tree. I had three Green Mound Alpine Current in that location that were not doing well, so I pulled them out to plant the Barberry, thinking they would be more suitable to the shaded area. The leaves are becoming covered with brown dots... see picture. Can you tell what the problem is and offer a solution? Thanks. BeAnn
