What's Wrong With Maple

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my Japanese Maple Tree!
(I think she may be sick).  No, that isn't snow on her leaves or ice, it's still in the high 60's and 70's here.  

My knock-out roses and other plants and flowers are still blooming and don't have anything on there leaves.

My grandson, Johnathan, came home with us after church on Sunday and spent the night with us.  He loves roses and picked me a bouquet and arranged them himself in my vintage teapot.  He is so thoughtful.

The white rose is a Tea Rose my daughter gave me for Mother's Day and he planted it for me.  You may not can see it but it has little spots of pink on each leaf.  I am amazed that it still has a couple of blooms on the plant at this time of year.

I hope my Maple tree doesn't die, It is so pretty in the spring and summer.  I don't remember it having this white on it in the years past.

Have a Blessed Day!


  1. Sorry about your maple tree Sylvia.. We dont have maple trees here..So I cannot help you.
    maybe if you look it up..!!!
    how sweet of your grandson to pick roses for you and put them in your pot..
    your garden is looking lovely. Hope you get to the bottom of it.
    thank you for your kind comments.. val x x x

  2. Hi Sylvia,
    I don't know what is wrong with your tree, but sure do love your yard! Your roses are so beautiful, looks like summer still is where you live. I have a few roses blooming on the trellis and am enjoying them. Your little teapot is darling! Have a great week!

  3. Ohhhhhh! -sighhhhh- We have/love a Japanese Maple, and happily, it is fine.

    Do you have anything like a County Extension Service? Where one can ask questions about plants, etc.? We in NY State, have that. Here, I'd say that would be a good place to contact, and ask.

    And we have Cornell U. too. Do you have a state agricultural college?

    Oh my, I so hope someone has an answer. And a solution!!! Please keep us posted.


  4. Oh no, your poor tree! At first I thought it was pretty frost on the leaves until I read what you said. I am sorry that I don't have an explanation for your tree, but I hope you're able to figure it out.

    Beautiful roses, sweet friend, and your grandson is a sweetie just like his Grandmother :)

    Love and hugs to you!

  5. Your garden is looking gorgeous! Not sure what's wrong with your Japanese maple. Maybe take a leaf to a nursery and inquire? The roses are gorgeous, Sylvia.
