Why have all my leaves fallen off my Black Sambuca Lace Plant already?

I have a Black Sambucal Lace Plant which has done really well the last couple of years. It has grown rapidly earlier this year and produced the beautiful pink flowers but now all the leaves and flowers have completely gone and I'm just left with the plant as it usually looks in winter. As it is only August this seems very early in the year for this to happen, can anyone advise?



Have you done any work or planted/ dug etc anything near it?

You are right it is extremely early for leaves to be dropping.
Mine still have loads of leaves.

I can't explain this as my own is still in leaf, but it has been very windy which causes the foliage to dry out as well as the soil. Have you kept it well watered?
I hope it recovers as they are so beautiful.

How do I say thanks?
