Sighing! Hello! I am new to gardening and I need some help. I have a sapling Chinese redbud in a pot on my porch and it was doing great until recently. The leaves have gotten splotches on them. I looked up what it could be but I'm not sure if it's a fungus or if it can even be save at this point. It has leaves with brown patches pretty much all over the plant. I tried pruning it all off but I don't want to make it completely bald! What do I do? I don't want to throw it away...

Update: I pruned all most all the infected leaves off and sprayed it with a fungicide every few days. I left some of the less terrible leaves on so it could still preform photosynthesis and pulled them off when new leaves started growing. We'll see how it goes! I hope it makes it. It has lots of little leaf buds so hopefully they won't develop the splotches too.
