I'm new to this forum. My Japanese Maple was planted this spring. It had red leaves then. They are now mostly all green. We've had lots of rain so I've not watered it alot.

Suggestions please??

A lot will depend on the cultivar you planted. Some cultivars are better than others when retaining color in the summer. Also, most cultivars want several hours of sun for best color. Those planted in too much shade will turn various shades of purple/green to all green in mostly to full shade.

Thank you. That's good to know. I don't know what cultivar. I'll look on the plant. It's in full sun, and gets morning sun too.
