New growth on a young Texas Red Bud

Asked September 25, 2015, 7:30 AM EDT

I planted a small Texas Red Bud last fall, and it has grown beautifully this summer. In fact I continue to see new growth now in late September. My question is: Will this late new growth be a problem for the tree once it gets cold and temps go below freezing? I have not fertilized the tree other then what went on to it when I fertilized the surrounding lawn.

New growth in the fall is not a problem, just a healthy tree. Fertilizing with your lawn is most likely all it needs. You can give it extra in the spring if you like.
