|I have what I think is a Japanese maple bush in my yard pictured below.
It looks to be anemic and has mostly green foliage. Aren't these plants supposed to be red in color, or just in certain months.
Should I fertilize it, and if so when? Thanks for your help

|It is a Japanese Maple - the color will depend on the cultivator. It may be bush sized but it is a tree. The tree is grafted onto dwarfing stalk and I suspect is full grown.
All plants can use some fertilizer once in awhile. Use some all purpose fertilizer following the container instructions. I like time-release fertilizer so I don't have to do it as often.
