Pink flowering dogwood, dying?

GregP731September 25, 2013

My wife and I got a pink flowering dogwood for a wedding gift. We planted it as soon as we could but it was in the pot from the nursery for a few weeks.. Despite keeping it watered the best we could some of the leaves started to wilt.

We have since planted And had it in the ground for roughly 2 months and it still looks very sad. Most of the leaves are curled and dry, but we did notice it has grown some and even has some berries/(buds) sprouting. What gives ? Is it going to survive?

GREG!!!!!

congrats ...

otherwise.. ITS OCTOBER ... in a week.. its leaves are going to fall off... who cares what they look like ...

i would be more curious as to what you did to it at planting... rather than leaf condition ...

refer to the link .. and lets discuss ANYTHING you did contrary to such ... because right now.. is when we fix any faulty presumptions you made ... as to how to plant a tree ...

may you live long and prosper ...

ps: actually.. the planting discussion should be taken over to the tree forum... as there is no way this is really a pest or disease issue.. disease simply does not work this fast .... and most of your bugs are probably dead from cold nights.. like me down here in MI ...

Here is a link that might be useful: link
