Japanese Maple

I am a complete novice so forgive me from the start. I live in Kansas and in March, I planted a Japanese Maple in my front yard. The yard is facing south. The area the tree is planted is full sun for 90% of the day. When planted, the leaves were a plumb color. Biwm the color has bled to the tips and the leaves eventually withers and dies. For most of the summer, this tree has been watered nightly. What am I doing wrong? Too much water? Not enough water? Too much sun? About June, I did spike it with Miracle Grow Foliage tree spikes, thinking it might be my soil. Please answer because I remain clueless. Thanks.

Re: Japanese Maple

I'm not an expert but I do know that they don't like it too hot/sunny. If they get too much sun - especially if it's hot and breezy as well then the leaves tend to get badly damaged.
I have several in my garden in the UK and even here the leaves sometimes get damaged by sun
