Q: Miss Debbie, I so enjoy your show! I wondered if you had any thoughts on our mystery tree, as to what it is and what the problem with the leaves might be. We’ve had it next to our rental for 3 years. It appears to be growing but always looks sickly.
A: This is a Tri colored beech ( Fagus sylvatica ‘roseomarginata’). They are a beautiful tree but do have a tendency to scorch in full sun. They do best with morning sun and some afternoon shade. Thanks for listening to the show!! Stay cool, if that’s possible.
