Copper Beach looks "off season"

We have a young (12 years) copper beach that we planted 2 years ago on the east side (sunny side) of our home. Last June it was beautiful with purple leaves at this time. This year the leaves look almost dry and are shriveling up. We have had many unseasonably cold nights and cool days. Can the tree be preparing for winter already? I even have an oak tree with the leaves changing to red in the backyard. Or is there another explanation? Thanks

Maybe the trees need to be watered.
