My friend's plum tree. This tree is planted near a fence, facing SW and it seems to be growing well. It has been in the ground for about 4-5 years now and is about 7-8 feet high, well branched and has grown about 8" this year. My friend is very concerned because it never flowers at all. She is also worried about the condition of the leaves....I thought this was just a bit of rust, but I said I would ask my friends! A lot of the leaves have fallen off, but I have lost a lot of my leaves in the high winds as well. To be honest it looks healthy to me. The ground is damp, it's been fed. It just doesn't want to flower or fruit and looks a bit unsightly now, but when I looked at it in June it looked really good. Any ideas? Sorry, I don't know the variety. Oh, and sorry I didn't have my camera with me when I visited!
