Two Rosemary's in a pot one died... help?
I have two different types of Rosemary's in an 18 inch clay pot outside. One is upright and the other pronate. I live in San Antonio, TX and we have had unbelievably hot and dry weather. I water my potted plants every other evening... sometimes in the morning or every evening if they are all looking wilted or stressed. I water thoroughly but all my pots have good drainage.
A few days ago (about one week) my upright rosemary started to look brown... looked fine in the morning when I left for work but was "dry" looking by the late evening when I got home. I thought it was "thirsty" so I watered it and over the next two days it dried to look like a dead Christmas tree.
The pronate Rosemary looks fine... It is bright green and healthy but I am worried it too will dry out. What happened? Should I transplant the pronate? Is my upright DEAD!!! Do I remove it from the pot? HELP!!!! What should I do and how do I keep it from happening again?
