The children gave me my kwanzan tree in 2009 and it was very expensive. It has so many problems with the branches looking infected or dying, not sure. At the time they didn't realize it was a Gisela grafted. My neighbor has the Kwanzan Cherry and it's beautiful, shaped like a vase where mine is more like a weeping tree. There are a lot of dead branches or branches that are partially dead and it seems infected. Do you have any advice on care.

If we were of the problems the grafted tree had they would not have purchased it.

There is a weeping Kwanzan. Yes, a picture of the problem areas would be helpful.

It sounds more like your tree is a Weeping Higan cherry. The Kwanzan is an upright tree. There is a new weeping tree called 'Weeping extraordinaire', the info says it has "Kwanzan like" flowers, but it has not been released as yet. Every search I have made for Weeping Kwanzan shows the tree as being of up-right vase-like growth.

A location of where the tree is, and pictures of your tree would go a long way in helping to discover the problem.
