Challenged cherry.

Q: I live in North Carolina. My 2- to 3-year-old kwanzan cherry tree only bloomed at the base of the branches. We have had a lot of rain and some of the roots are showing above ground. The surrounding cherries are fine. A pine previously planted in the same spot was pulled out by a storm. Could there be a problem with the soil content or the amount of water?

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

A: If the soil is water-logged, then the cherry would exhibit undersized leaves, yellow leaves, leaf-drop, stunted growth and twig dieback over time. Those same symptoms also describe insufficient water.
