Bihou Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Bihou'
This plant died!
Early in spring a black blotch appeared on the lower trunk which slowly spread, circling the trunk and creeping up toward the crown. Finally the leaves began to wilt, and I pulled it. I’m wondering if moving it in Feb/March allowed some sort of disease to take over? In any case I probably won’t plant another japanese maple in that spot.
