My Eastern Redbud has been dying off slowly since I transplanted it this spring
. It looks like leaf scorch or maybe verticillium wilt, but no pictures on google actually match what I am seeing. The leaves on the branches have turned black on the edges and curled up, then died. Luckily, there seems to be a tremendous amount of new growth on the tree trunk itself, so I am hoping it survives. I'm afraid to leave it be though, because I dont know what is wrong, and some of the new leaves have started to die too.
BTW I planted it in clay soil, which I have since found out is very hard for these trees. I just dont want to move it again already for fear that I will shock it into death.
