I bought a Loropetalum 'Black Pearl' last year, which I placed in a large planter and fed and watered it well. It looked beautiful! This last couple of months, however, all the leaves have turned brown and lots have fallen off. It has no new growth. I snapped off one of the smaller branches and it was a pink colored in the middle. Is my tree dead?
