We live in East Central Florida and bought a Dogwood Tree about 3 months ago. All the leaves have started to curl and turn brown (even the new leaves). It's about 6 feet tall. The leaves aren't falling they just don't look healthy.
What could be wrong with it and what do we need to do? Thank you.

Water stress can cause those symptoms. Be sure to water deeply once each week, especially during the hot summer months. Inspect the leaves for signs of insects and disease spots. If you find none, it's a water related stress. Good luck with your dogwood.
