red laceleaf Japanese Maple

Hi everyone,

I need help with my red laceleaf Japanese Maple. It is about ten years old and it is reverting green. Not the chartruese green. I have one of those and it is beautiful. They both get fertilized and plenty of water.

Thanks for any help.

Diane
I have a lovely red laceleaf Japanese maple. It is now reverting back to green. Why and what can I do to bring it back to red.
Thanks

Hi and welcome to the Forum! I took the liberty of moving your post to the Tree section, since you had the question about your Japanese Maple. The Intro section is mainly for saying Hi and not everyone takes the time to read them. More people will see it here who might be able to answer your question.

To get a good answer, the more info you can give us, the better help you are likely to receive. To start with where are you located, what zone/ kind of climate. How is your JM situated (full sun, part shade, etc) and how do you care for it.

If you could post a picture, that might be helpful too. Instructions for that are linked in my signature.

laceleaf JM

I was advised to give a whole lot more info.

I live in Roswell,(North east Atlanta sub) Ga. Zone 8

My JM is planted in part sun in the AM and full sun from noon until 6:00PM. I fertilize (maybe not enough), prune and water every other day. It does not look dry or sick. Just more green than red.

It is cloudy today, yeah. I will take photo when it is sunny and post it.

Thanks, Diane
