Newly planted Forsythia has a few leaves turning lightly purple
Is that normal for Sept 1st?
There are a lot of trees around here turning color. The neighbor across the street's maples are turning red already.
The light purple is really very pretty, and the bush appears to be healthy, no brown leaves or anything, and the leaves are really soft. It actually put out a few new leaves since it was planted last week, but that was before the purple showed up.
Could this early purple color be transplant shock?
Just so you know, Im not wigged out over this, I'm just trying to figure out if fall color can happen this soon on a bush. It seems really early to me. Although our temps were down in the 40's overnight last week....
