Help!..is my Tamukeyama dead?? :(

VikulyanApril 12, 2012

We planted a Tamukeyama Japanese Maple in front of our house at the end of summer 2011. It was doing great after we planted it, and we waited after the crazy Oklahoma summer heat to plant it to be safe! Well it's Spring now, and after the leaves fell off this winter, no new bulbs are coming in! :(

I worried more about the cheaper Japanese Maple we purchased at Lowe's that we planted in the back, but that one bloomed early this Spring and looks beautiful! This one we purchased at a nice nursery and probably spent the most on it for that flower bed, and it is the only thing not looking so well this Spring...:( Is it too late for it? Is it completely gone..? How can I tell?

People ask about failed/failing Japanese maple cultivars on the internet over and over. Failure to leaf out completely or at all in spring may indicate bacterial blight infestation.
