    Looking at it my first thought was you'd set fire to it image

    On closer inspection I think I can see black aphids on the stem, not sure as my eyesights not great and the zoom isn't working. Hopefully someone else can see them better and help I'd the problem.

    If it is aphids dilute fairy up liquid and spray the entire plant. Make sure you do under the leaves as well as on top.

    I can see the aphids too. But did it get cold  as well?

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Are they susceptible to wind burn because that's what it looks like to me?

    I think it could be leaf scorch. Acers do not like windy situations.

    When I find aphids on a plant I squish em but you can also blast them off with a spray of the hose.

    No idea about the black crispy looking leaves though, sorry.
