JAPANESE MAPLE ORANGE DREAM
Growing well until last week now leaves wilting & dropping off, had a hale storm 2 weeks past could this have been the cause.
How do I solve the problem
Hail can damage foliage but that would be evidenced by torn or shredded leaves and pock marks on the stems.
The wilting may be excess cold or a lack of moisture. Is it in a pot and are you watering it? If newly planted in the ground it will need regular watering until it gets established and its roots start to spread out looking for nutrients and water. Protect it form wind too as the foliage is fragile.
