I have had this plant for 2 years and this year it finally decides to flower. Unfortunately, now it looks like it is dying. Very droopy leaves, leaves falling off at a rapid pace, all new buds and blooms have also fell. What in the world could be wrong with this beautiful plant & what do I need to do save it? Would be very grateful for feedback

I'm sorry to hear it GardenDiva. I love mine too but it is a tad finicky. Too much or too little water maybe? or have you recently (over)fertilized?
If it's in a pot I would dig it up and repot it. Theremight be something going on underneath the soil....
Others may have suggestions for you too,

Cherie, what plant are you talking about here? Apparently Hetty knows, but I don't. Perhaps it is shown/named somewhere, but I don't see it.

Had to check what type of plant that is..interesting it grows zone 9 to 12! My type of plant!

In my readings, it says, it likes being rootbound and grown in an acidic potting soil...maybe the soil needs to be changed now.

This is the link I was reading, hope it helps: http://www.ehow.com/how_4750419_grow-yesterday-today-tomorro...

I have a Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Brunfelsia pauciflora) that's been in the same container for four or more years and it's looking pretty ratty; totally root-bound; I know it would do better in ground but have been so lazy about finding a place to plant it. I've seen some beautiful specimens in gardens here in Florida and I've heard a few folks say that it is a very finicky plant.

A mature shrub in full bloom is a sight to behold. But it takes them a while to get to this point. Picture from the internet... but we have them blooming at the Naples Botanical Garden like that.

It really is a lovely plant, you can see why it has the common name. The flowers change color as they age so it usually has dark purple, mauve and almost white on the bush at the same time.

It's been so long since I've seen one, do they start out purple and fade or the other way around? The one I remember was a big beauty at Selby Gardens just like that one in Hetty's picture.

I used to have one (it lived for about six years), but it died about three years ago; don't know why. I would like to get another one, but I've not seen this plant for sale locally though. I'll have to search around more thoroughly as it's such a pretty plant.

Thank You! Long time getting back to this. My Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow took a major nose dive lost all the leaves and thought I was going to lose plant, but I cut it way back and have been fertilizing regularly and it is looking much healthier as it grows back. Glad it is in mostly shade location for this time of year. AS always, thanks for all the feedback. Great site!
