Cardinal Wysyski-Did I kill it?
I bought a decent sized pot of this beauty, along with General Sikorski. the general is doing beautiful, but Cardinal is not. I haven't had time to plant them, left the in a sun/shade area near lilacs. Checked water & kept moist.
I looked at it today and I swear it is dead. Some stems dry & brittle, levels shriveled. I went back to the garden center and they were like, well it could be irregular watering or the cold (Chicago Z5) we have had (not to mention rain). You should plant asap. (which I am doing in the morning). Does anyone think there is hope for this, or should I go back to the store and argue it out? $20 was a lot - but as I said, General was right next to Cardinal, and is freely flowing. Clematis is a new addition to my garden. Any help is greatly appreciated. I'd hate for Cardinal to croak.Thanks!
