Coral Bark Japanese Maple Growing Large Leaves
I have a coral bark (sango kaku) Japanese maple which I quite like. It was planted last spring and has generally appeared quite healthy up until now. I've noticed that ~ 3 branch have changed over to producing large green leaves. The leaves are green, with maybe a bit of yellow splotchiness. They are missing the characteristic red outline of smaller more delicate leaves on the rest of the tree.
I read some other posts about branches growing from below a graft line, but these are literally changing over mid-branch.
I'll also mention that I've also seen some "scorch" (I think) from the recent heat/dryness in the north east.
