Blue Potato Tree (Bush) - Knowledgebase Question

Last year we bought 2 Blue Potato Trees from you. They did well & bloomed all summer. This year, however, we haven't seen leaf or sprout 1. I cut into a bough & there was green so they aren't dead. But their skeletal look isn't acceptable. Any suggestions?

Blue Potato trees like hot weather and grow best when both the soil and the air are consistently warm. It may be a little early in the season to expect yours to leaf out. Give them a few more weeks and you should see new foliage emerge. Best wishes with your plants.
