Oh no!! :Red Flame grape leaves sick...?
After trying so long to get a Red Flame grape to grow & I got one last year started well. This spring though all last year's growth froze to the ground!! Later, a big healthy sprout began growing up from the roots below ground & now has several 6 ft. long new vines I have trained on wires. Hopefully this is still a Red Flame & not from a ? grafted rootstalk? Last month I found a small cluster of tiny grapes forming (way too late in the season) but it gave me hope...! Now after our New Mexico 'floods' last week I see most of the leaves are turning a dry, rust colored!! The leaves on the Concords we have are just fine. Now I am worried about losing the Red Flame again! Could it be from the heavy rains we got (rust?) or just the time of the season? I will cover these precious new vines this winter (zone 7@5200 ft.) with tarps for sure!
