The tree appears to be alive...some nice green leaves and some flowering, mostly a couple branches on the bottom. There are buds and green, healthy appearing branches[small ones]. BUT no leaves! Leaves start growing and then disappear. I have seen some on the ground at times. No ants or other critters that seem as if they might strip the tree...plus there are leaves only on a couple of bottom twigs. I \'ve had this tree for three years and it is about 5 feet tall. It is in a sunny place, for most of day, in Tucson, AZ. Soil is sandy. I\'ve tried watering it more, but seems to make no difference. Recommendations?? Thanks.
