Unfortunately, overwatering can produce symptoms like drooping, wilting, or leaf discoloration that mimic the symptoms of under watering. In such cases, we tend to water even more, compounding the problem. Overwatering could cause problems with dogwoods. They don't like wet feet, and that could predispose the trees to other things like fungus and bacterial infections.
