Hi, I am new with a japanese maple. I got this little fella last summer, I left it outside so it can go thru all the seasons, so it went thru a very harsh New England winter. So its finally spring now and most of my other plants are sprouting leaves and so forth except for this little guy. So I was wondering if its a goner. The branches are still bloody red, I trimmed off the dried up branches and I water it every day. Anyone have any clue, that will be great, I attached a picture.
