Oklahoma Redbud Tree - Knowledgebase Question

My tree is not doing well. It has been about 2 months and until recently flourished. The leaves are folding up, and some are drying out and are crisp to the touch. What is wrong and what can I do?

I'm puzzled! Oklahoma Redbud grows well in your gardening region and is recommended as a drought tolerant landscape tree. Crispy leaves indicate either sunscald or a need for more water. I can only assume you are watering deeply once each week and that the tree is not next to a wall or building that might reflect heat. Wish I had more to share with you, but I just don't know what to suggest!
