Goshiki Kotohime in the fall

Hello to all,

Wanted to share with you pictures of the Goshiki Kotohime I planted just a couple of weeks ago.

I noticed that the trunk color changed from green to reddish this early November. The leaves have also changed to orangey from green last summer.

Bought the plant late summer but got to plant it only after having it in my backyard in a pot for maybe 5 weeks.

RE: Goshiki Kotohime in the fall

You're a little vague. Looks normal. Is there a problem?

RE: Goshiki Kotohime in the fall

There is no problem. In fact I am so delighted to observe the changes happening to it.

It should get better as the tree gets established.

RE: Goshiki Kotohime in the fall

I'm glad to hear that.
Japanese Maples are fun to grow and they're the right scale for most suburban gardens.
You might consider moving it out from the house more. If not now, later will be OK. When dormant they move rather well.
