Last spring I bought a nicely shaped Bougie 'Double Delight'. This was the plant last summer.
It suffered with the cold this past winter and I thought I had lost it but it came back from the roots. There are a half dozen good sized shoots but the leaves are tremendous, some are 6", nothing like the dainty leaves on the plant pictured above. I actually thought it might have been grafted on to a different rootstock but I have looked carefully and there is no sign of a graft. I fertilized it with Espoma Flower Tone earlier this spring same as I did last year when it performed perfectly. I have several other bougies and noticed no difference in their growth this year.
What would make a bougie do such a weird thing?
