Has the light changed? It prefers well draining soil in part shade. You can give it a general tree and shrub fertilizer during the spring and summer. Follow the directions on the fertilizer. Check the leaves for aphids or psyllids, which can be controlled with neem oil or insecticidal soap.



You might consider propagating it from semi-hardwood cuttings or seed in case you lose it.
