What's wrong with my Abiqua Moonbeam

Gesila(MI Z5)June 14, 2013

Any idea what's wrong with this guy? It probably got left in the garden over the winter. What should I do with it?

There is plenty of life left in it. Look at the new growth in 3 separate places. Put it in the ground, let the newly emerging leaves get some growth and then trim the dying foliage.

Repotting or planting out is in order, IMO. The momma plant looks like she got/ stayed too wet & is maybe a bit too deep. Nice younguns' on the way, though so rescue efforts definitely worth it.

I think its other name is Mayan Moon. My Abiqua Moonbeam,has always grown well,but it has always been planted in the ground. Phil
