My Fireglow JM has leaves turning green - confused!?!
My 4 year old Japanese Maple Fireglow has its bright red leaves turning green this summer. Could this be a mineral deficiency? I put 10-10-10 around the tree is early spring this year. It has been very dry in the area the last several weeks. The ground is so dry that I have cracks forming in the clay subsurface that makes up the alkaline soil here. I have not watered the tree, but maybe I should have.
The tree never had its leaves turn like this. Other than this peculiar transformation the tree has been very healthy. I'm not sure if it is a problem or not. I'd appreciate some advice or reassurance that the tree is ok. Thanks
