a privet leaf is leaves that stick insects eat !
Yes, they're deciduous, so they lose their leaves in the winter. I hear--although have not seen yet (planted my purple leaf plum hedge this spring) --that the bare wood is a very dark purple color in the winter.
No. The purple leaved plum is Prunus Pissardii which very occasionaly will produce plums.
Yes, purple leaf plum hedge plants are evergreen. The woody plant in question (Prunus cisterna) does not drop its foliage within less than a year, which is the hallmark of deciduous or non-evergreen plants. Purple leaf plum hedges provide landscaping color, interest, and texture even while other plants that do not drop foliage over the course of several years are littering the ground with leaves for composting.
The kingdom phylum class order family genus is the family of plant species that have at least five leaves and the species of a purple leaf plum is genagia.
