|Your Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter Vesuvius', or purple leaf plum should not have dropped all its leaves so I think it is showing distress from the weather and from being transplanted. Wait until next spring to see if it leafs out again. If not, you'll want to replace it; if so, it indicates it has finally established its root system. In the meantime be sure to water deeply once each week. Good luck with your tree!
