My Monrovia Japanese Maple 'Bloodgood' seems very healthy,
except for the new leaves are red, but the older leaves went
from red to green after it was transplanted.I thought this type of maple stayed red throughout Spring & Summer...

Thank You,
Leslie

The changing leaf color is a symptom of stress in your newly transplanted maple. Give your new maple regular water (water deeply once each week) to help the roots become established. After the tree becomes established it will produce red leaves which will hold their color throughout the growing season.
