The Q&A Archives: purple leaf plum

Question: we bought a purple leaf plum about a month ago,it has not leaves at all, is it normal or the tree died allready?

Answer: Your tree should have some leaves by now. Use your fingernail to scrape the bark off one of the branches. Green tissue beneath the bark indicates the branch is still alive. Brown tissue means it's dead. Keep scraping until you find green tissue. If you don't find any, the tree is dead. Hope you find some green tissue!
