Chinese Fringe tree can be difficult to transplant and can sulk for a few years if it is not happy. If you planted it in full sun, planted it at the same soil level as it was growing in the nursery container, water regularly and feed annually, there's not much else you can do to ensure its success. The roots will eventually establish and the tree will make up for lost time. Just be patient and continue to give it good care. I'm sure it will perk up soon!
