purple acacia tree

I have a purple acacia tree. Looks sick. It was planted approx. 1 yr ago (maybe less), was growing fast, beautiful purplish/blush colored, feather-like leaves. Now it looks almost yellowish, doesn’t seem to be growing and just looks sad. Which makes me sad. Gets lots of afternoon sun, that area of my garden gets watered twice weekly. I have planted another purple acacia tree which is taking off beautifully. What is happening or what am I doing wrong?
