Answer: Brunfelsia normally drops its leaves in winter but produces lots of healthy new foliage in the spring. It's a good sign that your plant is flowering, but not such a good sign that the leaves are sparse. This can happen if the plant is overwatered or if it is over-fertilized. If you haven't fed, don't.... As for watering, try watering deeply but less frequently. Usually one inch per week is all the plant will need, applied slowly so it has a chance to trickle down and wet the entire root mass. Hope making these adjustments will encourage lots of healthy new foliage. In the meantime, enjoy those blossoms!
