|I would like to plant in our entry way, however very little direct sun. It would get indirect light all day and probably like 2 to 3 hours of direct sun in mid afternoon. I live in the Phoenix area and have had good luck with these in the past but in full sun only, so I am sort of concerned about above situation.
Also, I notice a lot of these plum trees are showing dry brown spots on their leaves. What is causing this?

|Welcome to Garden.org, @Jerry !
I pretty much know nothing about growing things in your area, and have never grown a purple leaf plum tree, but generally plants that have the purple/red leaves need quite a bit of sun to retain that color, else the leaves are more greenish.
Sorry I don't have more to offer -- I hope some of our members with experience with your plant will chime in on this subject!

|Yes, without a lot of sun, your purple plum may be more green than purple. They also get quite large - does your entry have that much room?
