  • Can you say where you are in the world and add a photo of the plant to your post please? – Bamboo Jun 4 '18 at 14:39
  • I 'm in Portugal. I d'not have photos but the Plumbago seems to be well, vigorous, without diseases and without bugs.Have I done something wrong with pruning this year, too late, too early, too much ....I like this plant so much because it is so simple to treat in the Mediterranean climate ..... – Maria Jun 4 '18 at 14:51
  • Did you have a colder than usual March/April? Doesn't sound like you pruned at the wrong time, usual recommendation is January or early Feb. – Bamboo Jun 4 '18 at 19:58
  • yes maybe, a little cooler than usual and more rain – Maria Jun 5 '18 at 10:38
  • In that case, it maybe just late... but you should closely inspect the plant for signs of infestation or disease (look under leaves as well as on top). If its healthy, hopefully you might find signs of budding in preparation for flowering. If you cut it back really hard this year, that might account for it too - it would certainly delay flowering – Bamboo Jun 5 '18 at 15:05
