Q.My blue potato plant shrub has no leaves or buds as of March 29 in San Jose, CA.
Other plants are budding and flowering. Should I be concerned or is it just late to start. Weather here is in the 60s to 70 currently. I did break a twig and it looked green.

Well, it isn't quite hardy in your area. It may be too injured to recover, but it never hurts to give it a chance.
You will have to grow these as a potted plant in your area, and bring it indoors during winter. This article will give you more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/potato-bush/potato-bush-information.htm
