Answer: Rekha,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Your description sounds like maybe it was killed by winter cold. I suggest you take a photo of the plant to your County Extension Office along with a branch sample for them to look over and diagnose. There is no charge for their service.
