I bought an ornamental pear tree (Pyrus Callayara) in the Autumn 3 years ago. I was attracted by its flame red foliage when I bought it. I was looking forward to seeing this color again each Autumn but disappointingly its leaves have never turned red again since I planted the tree after purchasing it. Instead in November the leaves briefly turn yellow and fall straight away or just fall from green.
The tree is very healthy and has grown extremely well. In the summer its foliage is glossy green with no sign of disease. Is there anything I can do to encourage the tree to get the Autumn color I thought it would have?
