I am a new homeowner with no yard experience, and had landscaper plant a weeping cherry in my front yard back in late May. It receives almost all day sun, facing west. It gets watered 2x a week along with the rest of the yard; seems to be developing some new growth the past 2 weeks. All of a sudden the last couple of days, the leaves are turning yellow and it looks as though it is dying. What have I done/what could be wrong? I am from Ohio, where these trees are common, but are they "survivors" of summer heat down here? I assumed that since the nursery (Southwest) carried it, I would be ok planting it. Do they need more or less water than my Nellie Stevens and quince, which is also looking a bit straggly.
I think something needs to be done now, but I don't know what.
Hi LostCreek - I live in Forney in Fox Hollow Estates. The tree was bought from Southwest Nursery, who is very reputable; I had a different landscaper do my backyard and it looks really great - never lost even one plant since I had it done two years ago. This person didn't have the expertise and wasn't well versed in all types of plants, but I thought that someone like Southwest would have warned me.... I moved here from Ohio two years ago and we have weeping cherries back there- guess this is more of a sentimental planting vs. practical.
If it goes totally, I suppose I should just put in a live oak. I have two other fairly large "red" maples in the front now. This would be near the corner of the garage by the driveway between the other two trees. I also have two Nellie Stevens in the front.
