Hi guys, Bought a Sode Nishiki of about 300 cm last winter. Put it in full sun (sunrise to sunset), I'm in zone 8a. Normally, according to the Vertrees book, it should be able to handle full sun. But it seems to struggle a little bit. I water it daily whenever over 22° C. Planted it by digging out the old soil, adding a lot of improver (also lower pH), has good drainage, ... Check out the pictures. I'm wondering what I should do. It's a big tree, it came in a small pot, it probably needs to develop a root system as well. Let's say if it would not be able to handle this place, would it die already this year? Or is that a multi-year process? I could always dig it out in winter and then keep it in a pot in the shade out back. But it's such a beauty, I don't want to move it if not really necessary. Maybe it will get used to this place in a couple of years? Also: check out the close up on the leaves. Is that just the sun, or could this be something else? "Shade" side... at least not a lot of sun on this side, only morning sun. Full sun side. You can see a lot more yellow here. Close up on a sun side. Another one. Closeup of "shade" part, more inside the tree. Also probably gets access to water first.
