purple smoke tree

I've searched everywhere and I can find out when they flower, but can anyone tell me if they leaf out early or late?

thanks

Mine leafed out very early. In fact got burned by a not so late frost.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.

That's what I was afraid of. I have one that was put in last year to replace the second of two junipers that died. I think this one is dead as well. funny, well not really...

Don't give up

I agree with Alex.... they tend to be early leafers. I also know that they often will resprout from the base if the top dies back. Prune back to where you find live wood and watch the base for sprouts.
hey its me!
