Last year I purchased a japanese maple disectum and I ham a little concerned that the leaves haven't come out yet. There are some small buds but nothing that looks like it would open to a leaf. When should I be concerned that something is wrong woth the tree. I am in zone 5 and this is planted in a north facing backyard close to the north wall of the house. I also have boston ivy planted on another part of the north facing wall and again I haven't seen any leaves the climbing hydrengas that are also planted have budded and there are lush green leaves on them. When should I be concerned about these plants?
