I started this tree from seed.
The seed was one of about thirty I tried to germinate.
This one took. and has been growing for three years. every spring the buds open leafs out then they turn rusty colored. and fall. the tree seems as though it goes back dormant in the middle of the summer! it does nothing. then the following spring repeats it self. this year it the buds open. I put it out. the leaves did the same thing. the plant seems happier indoors. I cut all the discolored foliage off. and watched new leaf form. I have kept it where it seems happy indoors. any suggestions. I will add pictures.
