I know, I should post a photo. Here is my situation and hopefully some of you can empathize. I’ve been known to endanger all plants, although occasionally I can manage to not kill cacti. Rock gardens tend to be the only safe type in my care. However, when we moved to South Florida, I did want to become at least somewhat proficient with plants. I mean, it’s not like they don’t grow well here. (Oh, as an aside, my husband is quite good with plants.)
Anyway, the point is that I haven’t given up on learning about plants, but I haven’t progressed too much in this area either and I am utterly befuddled by our two bougainville that are in containers. They do quite well and then suddenly, the wind strips them bare or like now, the leaves have grown back after the last battering and we have no blossoms. They get lots of full sun and the leaves seem to be quite healthy, so if there is anyone who has a clue as to what the problem is, do chime in.
