I have a new dwarf plum tree with buds but no leaves

Asked May 27, 2019, 12:33 PM EDT

We just bought and planted a dwarf plum tree- it’s branches are pliant/bendy- not dry or dead. Some have a greenish hue. There are visible buds. But it has been there for over a month and no leaves have come out

Thank you for your question. I am unable to find any research published on this, and assume that it must be some environmental or nutrition issue. I suggest you check with the seller from whom you purchased the tree and/or consult your county Extension office for input: https://extension.psu.edu/lackawanna-county Good luck!
