    not knowing whther this plant in a pot or the ground is challenging. Stems losing color would indicate the plant has stressed due to water problems. If the water does not drain freely away from the root zone the stems will wrinkle and lose color. If caused by a lack of water the foliage first would turn brown, dry and crispy followed by stem withering. New growth is always a good of rule of thumb to determine if the plant's plumbing system is in good order.

    Did it go from shade , or a crowded situation ( where you bought it ) to full sun ? That might burn the leaves and fade the bark.
