Answer: Green tissue beneath the bark is a positive sign. It means the wood is live. As for how long it will take for you to see some new growth, it depends upon the strength of the root system and how warm the weather remains. Bougainvilleas love heat and their growth can be retarded when temperatures are cool. Place your James Walker in the warmest place you can find outdoors, where it can bathe in sunlight. It should perk up soon - at least I hope so!
