I love mine as well (it's only 2 years old), and this year (2013, June), I'm having the same problem. I have leaf-tip burn and yellow leaves. I've found its 'deciduous' and I'm going with that for now. (ie I'm ignoring the fact we live in the subtropics so 'deciduous' isn't really a thing here...and I'm letting its leaves drop and hoping come spring, with a good feed, it'll cheer up).
