Japanese maple - strange blooming behavior
I have several juvenile Japanese maples in containers left in my back yard year round.
One of them (a bloodgood of all things to be acting up!) only has about 10-15% of the leaves blooming thus far, and it's really weird: the blooms are in clusters at the ends of branches, and the leaves seem way too big for the size of the tree. Also the leaves are weighing down the ends of the branches in a strange manner.
The rest of the leaves seem to be finally starting to bloom with an appropriate size bud, but these clusters of big eaves have me stumped!!
