this plant is positioned on my patio,i have had this plant three years without a problem



You don't tell us where you live, Piriesb, but most of the country has recently had dry weather with strong winds. The combination of these two means that pots dry out much more quickly than usual and my first guess is that the plant needs a good watering.

Agree with Bulbaholic - drought. Stand it in a tray or something, soak it well, leave to stand in the water for an hour, then remove from the tray. Keep it watered regularly till November, when hopefully, nature will take over with cold and wet. I am, of course, assuming it's in a pot. I am still having to water the pots on my balcony every two days, currently.
