What's wrong with my Bougainvillea?

I have a ft tall Bougainvillea which recovered from a poor repotting exercise (the entire fragile root system fell off!) 2 mths ago. All its leaves fell off.

A month ago it came back with multiple shoots until a week ago problem started after I watered it.

The shoots started turning wrinkly and brown. New leaves fell upon touch.

I hardly watered it cos I know you don't water Bougainvillea.

The only problem I can think of is cos it's under full sun for almost 6 hrs daily? Am I frying it?? This plant loves the big blazing sun, doesn't it???



Hi Chatbud, I can't think of anything that would cause these problems, as you say they love the sun, so that shouldn't be a problem, sorry I can't help you, Derek.
