I really appreciate the observation! I think the wind really took a lot out of it since we had some severe storms in NYC this week, but its also constantly dry, so I think that and the heat wore it out a little bit too! It only gets morning and early afternoon sun (its shaded as of this time), but its my hottest part of the yard and easily reaches over 80F even on days in the 70s. Im going to water it now since it needs some water badly and next year it will be in the ground in a shadier spot so it should look much better. Its only in a small pot right now so considering all the neglect, its one tough plant!
