I had recently purchased a Japanese Lace Leaf Maple, and I believe it to be of the Crimsom Red type...not sure...
However I am experiencing some sun burn problems with the maple, and the maples leaves are no longer just red in color, and have begun to take a green center color instead of just full red..
I was told to plant this maple out of afternoon sun and have tried to do that in the best place possible in my front yard, with a north-east exposure. So the maple only gets the most sun during the day time period and not as harsh sun during the afternoon.
The plant gets plenty of water, and is watered daily for 15 minutes each day every day during the morning hours 6am or sooner.
To give you a general idea of my location I am in northern Illinois.
Can anyone help me and reassure me what I am doing is correct..
We had a perfectly fine japanese maple last year but some landscapers who transplanted the maple did not do it right and did it too late in the season and it was killed due to the harsh winter, however the maple lived very well for 2 plus years previous to the transplant. so we replaced it with the current one that has been inthe ground for close to 3 months.
Someone please help...
