I bought cherub & santa rosa this year because I thought they were supposed to do well in the heat. My cherub is hating the heat here, when its over 85-90 & its in the sun (only sun till 1pm) its completely wilted. I replaced my frosty pink with cherub because frosty wilted to much, but cherub is wilting MUCH worse in the same conditions.
My santa rosa just bloomed for the first time 2 days ago & the plant/leaves seems to do ok in the heat 95-99 (not wilting much) but the bloom is 100% wilted & SHRIVLED up all day long, in the sun & shade.
I thought these were supposed to do better in the heat, was I wrong?
