Kouza Dogwood: Dead or in Suspended Animation?
I have 2 Kouzas, both 5 years old. This Spring they both woke up at the same time. But, about 3 weeks ago, one seemed to stop progressing. That is, it got lots of early buds and a few leave. But it seemed to freeze like this, and remains exactly the same 3 weeks later. It appears to be alive.
We're in the Mid-Atlantic region, and weather here has been unseasonably warm. No frost for over a month. There's no evidence of pests on the tree.
FWIW, the other Kouza, progressed normally: bloomed, grew in leaves, etc.
Any thoughts on what might be causing this?
