Have you seem this maple?

Hello yet again!

I have this maple growing next to my concrete step in about 3" of dirt. Well, this baby has been there for about 3 years and I've grown to like its perseverance and leaf coloring. The thing is, I've never seen anything like it.

I was hoping someone might recognize the different stages I'm going to post here. There will be 3 pics posted separately.

Thanks for your help!
The first is the oldest growth

This 2nd pic is the medium mature leaves. I love their patterns!

All together

Here you can see the very newest (August!) growth is reddish.
This pic shows leaves in all 3 stages.

Any ideas?
I appreciate it! :)

RE: Have you seem this maple?

Just a guess...and I stress, a guess. Might be iron deficiency due to the high pH from the concrete causing yellowing with green veins.


RE: Have you seem this maple?

Oh, wow. What a shame.
If I dig it up and am actually able to move it, it'll go away!
I really like it.
Poor thing.
I wonder if like hydrangea, if I put a nail in the soil if it'll change. Worth a shot!
