We have a smallish Japanese maple in back yard. Typically around November the leaves turn a nice bright red and later fall off
This fall they never got red, turned brown and they still remain attached

Anyone know why this might happen?

I do somewhat remember some lower than average cold spots around late Oct and a couple articles said something about a too earl sudden cold causes things to stop suddenly and not allow the process to occur

Hope to not lose this thing
Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving

My Jap Maples are still holding leaves too. Don't remember that is previous years. I have 6 of them.

I was always taught to honor my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

Our single maple is too holding its leaves this winter. very odd indeed.

I think this could happen because of a sharp cold snap.
