Answer: Coral bark maples prefer morning sun and afternoon shade with moist but not soggy soil. It's important that the soil drain quickly or it will deplete the oxygen that the roots need. Don't feed your plant until it recovers; consistent moisture and shade in the afternoons should encourage it to leaf out again. When it does, you can feed it with a half-strength dilution of liquid fertilizer to give it a boost.
Hope it performs better for you!
