why have my solanum leaves turned black

it is a new plant at the front of house south facing does not seem to have grown during the 5 weeks ive had it



Hi I put a white solanum over an arch couple of years ago and it did quite well until a cold spell and high winds
turned leaves black. Realised too late it was in a bit of a wind tunnel. I left it for a while to see if it would recover but never seemed happy, so cut it right back, dug it up and put it in sheltered position, and crossed my fingers and its taken off again but slowly!. Did you have late frost maybe? It's a very young plant is it showing any signs of life? Could just try cutting it down now better weather here and giving it time to get established if you are sure in right position.
