I bougt an Acer Beni Schichihenge from RHS Wisley two years ago (in full leaf). This is its second spring in my garden. Both this year and last year the pink/green leaves that have opened up seem undersized. The tree has seemed to bud well but, as mentioned above, the leaves seem small. In the few branches where the colour of leaf as reverted to green, the leaves seem normal size (reasonably large actually). Is this normal (the difference in size between the pink/green leaves and the reverted ones). How big should the pink/green leaves on this tree be normally? Any reason why this could be happening? Could the tree be getting too much sun and this has affected it in some way?
Acer Beni Schichihenge problem?
