Pruning Purple Leaf Plum

I have already missed the time to prune my 1 year old dwarf purple leaf plum tree. Should I wait until next early spring before it buds or go ahead and trim it now? It has no more buds and seems quite top heavy. The tree was planted last year (in late spring). It budded for the first time in late Feb. or early March. All buds and flowers are gone now. There are shoots coming out low on the trunk and the growth is thick and unruly. The tree looks top heavy and leans a bit in strong winds. I’m afraid it might break.

Purple Leaf Flowering Plum

My purple leaf flowering plum is losing the smaller leaves. What causes this? The small leaves (i.e. new growth) are falling off my flowering purple leaf plum. I spray Sevin for pests but the younger leaves keep falling off. Why?
