mistreated Japanese Maple
Due to ignorance we planted a young Japanese maple in clay soil and all day sun this spring. Only after it began struggling did I do some research and learn of my mistakes.
It had stopped growing and had begun slowly losing leaves.
Recently, however, it has begun sprouting new bright, red leaves and shoots over most of its branches.
Despite the full sun location and the clay soil, amended with mulch, is there hope for this tree in its present location?
