My Photinia x fraseri - 'Red Robin' is not doing well

I have this plant for past two years. First year it was doing well but now it is becoming bare. I read information but nothing is working at the moment. I feel that roots has been rotten.




I can't tell if its in a pot or the ground, but wherever it is, its clearly been suffering from drought. If its in a pot, it may need a bigger one, but wherever it is, cut it back hard and feed it with growmore or similar forked into the soil around it. And keep it watered during the next dry spell, although if its been in the ground for two years, it should be able to find its own water by now. What exactly is it planted in?
