EARLVILLE, QLD, Australia
All my leaves are yellowing and falling off. It may be that the leaves fall off naturally but this time last year the leaves all fell off, but they did grow back and didn't seem to miss a beat, I even got beans on them. Great smelling flowers too
The plant is beautiful tropical looking and bright green. Only a few months old so we will see how it goes.
