Almond Tree Leaves

Jezjulie added on November 2, 2017 | Answered

I live in Saint Petersburg, Florida and was given two Almond trees last spring. I planted them and it both look very healthy. The larger one, about 20" tall, has beautiful large leaves, but they have gone from a bright green to a dark purple. Is this a concern?

Here is an article for more information on the care of the trees:
