Droopy new foliage
I recently planted a very young Autumn Blaze Maple tree. It was no more than a 5' tall "twig" when I planted it, so this Spring, I was excited to see buds all over it! The new leaves are now opening up and they are soft & green, but they are curled under and limp. The stems appear to be strong, as you can fiddle with the leaves and they don't flick off like they're dead. So, I'm just wondering if this is just how the brand new leaves on this maple variety are supposed to look, or if it's lacking something. I'm in Houston, TX........and this variety is "drought resistant" which is GREAT for the weather we have! Any ideas or reassurance that my tree leaves are just fine would be great. Thanks!
