Dwarf peach tree leaf problem.

toronado3800 Zone 6 StLouis(6)May 16, 2013

Hello, just wandering over from that GW Tree Forum looking for some tips.

My neighbor has had good luck with this small fella in his garden for a couple years. It has been pretty maintenance free except his attempts to keep the squirrels away.

Today he pointed this out to me. I can't make up my mind what is going on with some of the foliage on the under side of the canopy.

Like most of the midwest we had a night in the upper thirties followed by two ninety degree days. A couple of my Japanese Maples don't look so thrilled. This looks different to me though. Thanks for any advice.

It's peach leaf curl. The tree needs to be sprayed before bud swell in spring. All you can do now is dispose of the affected leaves.
