My husband bought me a C.Q.J.P. Mother's Day 2008. It did have some green on the leaves(I read about that being normal) and the tips of some leaves appeared brown or dried. The end of October to middle of November it became quite coloful but within two weeks every darned leaf fell off!! Now it's Nov. 17th, 2008 and all I have is a 3' high bare bones skeleton. Is this normal?? I notice a lot of these trees around and they still have the deep red leaves. Thanks for any insight anyone can give me.
