The Q&A Archives: redbud looks dead

Question: eastern red bud planted 3 months ago was doing great then it looks like it dried out and all the leaves turned brown any idea why we have had a lot of rain

Answer: I would sure check the soil drainage. Especially if the leaves died after a lot of rain. Dig down near the roots to see how wet the soil is. If it doesn't appear to drain quickly you might want to plant your new redbud in an area with faster draining soil. Sorry you lost your redbud.
