I recently planted a variegated dogwood and now all the leaves have teeny tiny brownish red speckles.  Any ideas what that is?  I hope it doesn't die, it's really pretty. 

 

ETA:  It looks like spot anthracnose and can be treated with a fungicide.

It's funny I never got around to buying fungicide, but the plant is growing lots of new leaves without mold spots on them.  It may have been a bit of transplant shock that lowered its immune system temporarily.
