Did I kill my Japanese Maple Crimson Queen?!!!
I planted a 3' Crimson Queen Maple on the west facing side of my house back in the spring. It was getting leaf scorch from the afternoon sun and the 100+ temps we were having so I decided to move it closer to the house so it would get only about 2-3 hours of direct sun and then filtered sun. After the move I noticed some of the leave on the very end of some of the branches were dying and falling off.
Did I make a mistake? I am giving it plenty of water and trying to coax it to live but am not sure what to do.
Any suggestions? Should I just wait and see? Move it again?
I really don't want to lose this beautiful tree. HELP......
