Q.Problems With Dappled Willow

Zone 18062 | Anonymous added on May 16, 2021 | Answered

I planted a Dappled Willow last year and it was doing well. This spring, however, I noticed some of the leaves seem to be browning and/or drying out and there are full leaves at the ends of the branches but smaller leaves in the middle. I’m not sure if it needs more water/less water or it has some type of disease.
