purple leaf plum tree problems
Currently I have a very old red maple. It has alot of problems and I have finally decided to take it down.
In its place I want to plant a purple leaf plum tree. It would be a sort of memorial for my huabands little brother Patrick. His parents had one in their back yard and I think it is such a hansom tree.
I am worried because, I have read on here that they have alot of problems with disease and bugs like japanease beetles. I never noticed any at Tim's parents thought the weaping cherry near by always had tons of japanease beatles. I also have a small weaping cherry but no beetles in the past 2 years I have owned it.
should I look into a red leaf crabapple instead?
Anyone have one in maryland with problems?
