It sounds unhappy in its present environment so I'd change things a little. Start by moving it to a more protected spot - morning sun and afternoon shade. Water often enough to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet and feed every 2-3 weeks during the spring, summer and fall with a half-strength solution of liquid fertilizer (Miracid, for instance). Hope this helps!
