Q.Bougainvillea No Leaves

Anonymous added on March 28, 2014 | Answered

I bought a bougainvillea in May/June. It had lots of leaves on it when I planted it in the ground. Just after I planted it, we had a huge amount of rain. Not long after about a month after I planted it, it lost all its leaves. It hasn’t produced leaves since then. However, it DID bloom flowers in the fall/winter. Can I expect leaves on this plant during the spring/summer?

If you had an abundance of rain, it could have gotten a fungus. Ensure that your drainage is sufficient. The fact that it bloomed is a good sign. As long as it is alive, you should begin seeing leaf buds.
