I noticed the same thing on one major branch of my bauhinia this year. I haven't seen this before and now see the buds are swelling as if it is going to slowly releaf along that branch. A close examination has not revealed any injury to the branch that is responding so slowly nor do I see any evidence of insect or disease problems. Thus I think we just wait and see. It may be that the weird winter we had is part of the cause but I honestly have never seen such a response and doubt it is a sign of a major problem.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
