This was a sale buy . B&B Fireglow . I purchased Last week . It had some bark damage but nothing looked affected. It looked much more alive when I bought it . I planted it on a cool rainy day . I carefully removed the clay from the root ball with a hose as well . Planted in a mix of the rootball clay native soil and half a cup of bone meal tilled up thoroughly . Planted the root flare high and thoroughly drenched the hole . Mulched heavily and away from trunk . Soil has stayed moist to wet . " maybe drowned "? The leaves wilted but never fell off , most are not crispy . Limbs and twigs are still bendable . And I see buds . I dont know if those are new or not . I also pruned after planting and used a spreader to open up canopy . The pruning was not severe mostly dieback but I did remove some crossing limbs . It is in an area that receives full sun but for two hours at noon . It has been windy . I have a acer palmatum that is in the same siteing no scorch at all. Any opinions ?
