Purple robe locust tree.
Today is March 18 2007 and I need to know when I can expect to see buds showing followed by leaves followed by flowers. Is this tree a late bloomer vs all other basic trees in the neighborhood? Everything is blooming leaves and flowers and my purple robe locust tree is still bare with no buds showing. I did scratch the bark to see if still green and it is very much so. What am I expecting to see and when? I have until the 29th of April, 2007 to return it within the 1 year warranty from Lowes.
