Answer: It can take several months for newly planted trees and shrubs to establish themselves in the landscape. During this period of adjustment foliage can yellow and drop, and flower production can be suspended. Once the roots of your jatrophia become established, they should perk up and produce new leaves to replace those that were dropped during its adjustment. In the meantime, water your jatrophia deeply once each week, allowing the water to trickle down slowly and wet the entire root mass. Good luck with your landscape!
