This happens every Fall. Squirrels? Wind? What? Makes it easy to winter over but EVERY year?? WHY?! Angry

It makes NO sense what so ever ! These were new growth, 4ft tall growing off the previous year's snap off. I even had them tied to a piece of old growth for stability. There are no dead bodies near by, or rocks in the pot. Sighhh Sad I'll try to root these as 6 shorter pieces so that it grows bushy . It's late in the year. I how is warm enough to root.

Hmmm, that is way too suspicious to me. The break look like they were done on purpose. Good thing these are easy to root.

I don't think it was done on purpose. It was upright when I left and lock-gated in on the driveway. I came home 2 hours later in a rain storm. So I suspect wind? The one next to it was untouched and it was in full bloom. If it was targeted, why not the one in bloom?

A couple of cane stakes in each pot would solve this problem. I stake pretty much all my dozens of plants, starting when they are 6" tall. I don't have any Pudica though. I had one but it did not survive my 4-5 month dormancy.

I stake a LOT of things. We have a lot of terrible storms ** and wind gusts often hit 30 - 70 MPH - even without a tornado. Virtually anything more than one foot tall gets hoops, stakes, cages et cetera. Sure it some times does not look great - but better than a broken stem. Just my 2 cents.

** June - Sept a Thunderstorm on average every 10 days.
