deformed leaves

(1/1)

Hi everyone,

My red Japanese maple had normal leaves earlier in the spring, but the new growth always turns out to be malformed. The leaves stay wrinkled and some only have 3 lobes rather than the usual 5. Even their shape this year is completely different from last year. Could this be some fungus or over fertilizing?

Owen Reich:
Not sure about the change in number of lobes.  The malformation could be a number of things from bugs to weather.  Please post a picture or two.

plantmanky:
would be nice to see a few pictures of the tree and leaves in question.  It would sure help to potentially identify the problem
