@icedance @keely @mellybobs I looked at stem again and noticed this black ring with this white speckled area , does it mean anything 🤔 pls tag anyone you feel may know #acer #problem #identify 😟

Hi Franca which branch are the dying leaves attached to ? It could be one of many things but one step at a time to diagnosis 👨‍⚕️ what potting medium is it in ? How old ? And how long in the pot ? X

Is that pale area a long snag? Acers do tend to get a bit of dieback and if you leave snags they can cause disease to spread into the living wood. I think I'd be removing the whole branch to make sure no diseased wood remains, and maybe spray with an anti-fungal (I use garlic wonder as an anti-fungal and it works well)

@mikethegardener are you able to help on this matter? 🤔

@icedance the bad leaves are on the branch that ends with this white part and black ring. It's in ericaceous soil and been in a couple of years, this year is first its flowered . I've been too dressing with fresh acidic soil and then feeding in spring with ericaceous food

All good so far .. I would be cautious about cutting back all the way as the area does spread into the main stem .. we can rule a couple of things off the list if you can cut back half way and check within the stem .. if there is a dark brown ring within or black, or if you peel back the bark you have cut off are there any brown streaks ?

@titchyfra it sounds like it maybe verticillium wilt, leaves wilt and shoots and branches die back, google it 🤞🍁

Hello @acermad it does look consistent with verticillium wilt will know more if we can see inside the stem I also wonder about phytophera ?

Thanks @atomica I don't think it's a snag as I had looked at it before leaves came out for any damaged wood and didn't notice it then
