Shiraswanum autumn moon health
This will have been the trees first summer in my yard. Probably a three or four year old tree that was bought at the nursery last spring and planted in the spring as well. I thought I had picked a good spot for it but it does not look so good anymore. I am awaiting the fall color but the leaves of this tree are a bit curled, dry and crumbling at the tips. The strange thing is that it also has new growth, buds and new leaves.
The tree gets a bit of early morning sun then shaded by a large tree until about noon. From noon to around 3pm it gets good sun then shaded by the house for the rest of the day. I also have a Seiryu, Kagiri Nishiki, Chishio, and Crimson Queen in the same garden. These are getting bit more sun as they are not shaded by the house as much and are all doing great.
The garden receives plenty of water and I have only fertilized the trees once during the spring. Does this tree need more light than the average J.maple? Does it need more fertilizer? Too much water? Should I be looking for disease?
And would it be ok after only having it in this spot for one season to move it this fall to a brighter spot or should I just give it some more time?
