Answer: Dogwoods do like partial shade, so maybe all it needs is a beach umbrella! I think it'll help if you spritz it with a seaweed or kelp fertilizer, too. Often when plants are stressed, they can't absorb enough nutrients through their roots, but leaves quickly take up nutrients and put them right to work. Gardens Alive (ph# 812/537-8650, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) offers great foliar fertilizers. However, don't rely soully on foliar feeding - next spring, dress the soil with compost and a slow-release organic fertilizer to ensure a good supply of soil nutrients. Best of luck!
