Hello,

My wife and I bought our first home 5 months ago in Roseburg Oregon and among many established plants, there are 2 Flowering Dogwoods. One is in the front yard and gets quite a bit more sun than the one in the back. They both began to take on this wilted look a while back, fully in bloom, before it started to get very warm out, and while we were still getting a fair amount of rain. I watered both somewhat heavily when it started and with no sign of improvement, I tried letting them go without for awhile and still the wilting continues... There is also many leaves on each that have burnt tips...

Thanks for any and all input!

You need to cut the water because it is getting way too much. There's no need to ever water this time of the year in Roseburg Oregon. Post a photo of the base of the tree going into the ground. Or send a photo to my tree mail
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Do they indeed look great or are they looking unhappy to you?

Well established trees won't be buried too deep or need any soil removed from the top of the root ball. It has been dry for Roseburg this year.

I don't see any signs of leaf scorch or brown edges which would indicate root issues.
