Looked like a dead stick when I got it. Started sprouting leaves within a few days.

Planted in Fall with all the recommendation, Great Plum tree with lots of Flowers
Only slight issue, it was labeled as Prunus Domestica; however, when spring came it was obvious a Prunus Salicana. Its a shame since all the plum is a Prunus Domestica which hasn't blossomed yet like the mislabeled Japanese Plum tree :) Nor can they cross-pollinate.
