my 5year old beautiful cercis canadensis is dying.

United Kingdom Gb

I have cut off all the dead branches, but the few with leaves are already shrivelling. It appears to have died from the top. How can I save it? I wonder if the very harsh winter (for Devon) has damaged it beyond hope.



It may be a fungus possibly, have one in bedford and its only young but it survivied the weeks under snow in in february! Take a sample to a garden centre perhaps?

mine survived the cold of east yorks. it does sound as if it is diseased. is it in a pot? perhaps it has vine weevil. has it got too dry in recent weeks?
sorry about the questions but sometimes we need just a little bit more info. :o)
