I have been excited about japanese maples for several years. In that time I have bought a coupe thousand trees. Of the trees I have purchased, I have found there are varieties that have reoccuring issues. I thought it would be helpful information for all if there was a thread which lists trees with issues and gave a brief discribed of the difficulties with these cultivars. Some of the main issues with these trees can be; growth habit, reversion, branch loss and or worst death. More specifics of the causes and cures can be discused on the thread about the listed tree. This thread is more for the buyer who just wants to know what is a risky tree to buy. I do hope everyone can provide us with a little history of their experinces with 'Buyer Beware' trees.
