Was growing “wildly” last year and pruned. Lots of apparent buds on all branches right now. Branches are flexible, so appears alive.No leaves or blooms although may be tip of a bloom. On West side of house. Have a Pixiepeach dwarf that has fully bloomed and putting out leaves. On East of house in full sun.
