I transplanted 3 Elderberry bushes last year, and did get new growth from them. This spring they started to get new growth then or 2 of the bushes the leves have turned purple and I’m not seeing any new growth. the Third bush is still green with new growth. Can someone tell my why this happened and if I can save them?
