I am still waiting for some of my plants last year to leaf out. I have 2 apples and a Prok persimmon I am slowly giving up on. I have plants that at least have green buds now that I bought. A lot of my euro pears and plums I purchased back in April are just now starting to come out. I have pawpaw I ordered that are still not out yet. At least in my zone 5 area things are being slow to come out because of the rain and cooler weather we have had. It reminds me of 2020 when trees did not start to come out until late June or July.
My kousa dogwood and Prok persimmon (both planted last year) have shown no signs of life but they still have green cambium so I’m hoping it’s just delayed? My pawpaws leafed out this week but they’ve been in the ground for several years. I’m in northern IL zone 5
My persimmons were pushing when that hellacious frost came through a couple of weeks ago. The big ones are pushing now again, but younger ones are just sitting there. Hopefully there are dormant buds above the graft!
Leafing out late is not uncommon for Am. Persimmon though. I’ve had bare root stuff I planted that didn’t leaf out until nearly August!
I figured. Some people joke about not being able to stop and having too many with seeds but I am sure with us here it is plants. The good thing is after a few years my front yard is finally starting to look somewhat like a forest or jungle instead of a bunch of barren pots which was the look I was going for.
