Wilting Annabelle - Help!!

Hi, I have a new Annabelle, I think it was planted back in June and was initially doing great. We didn't have much of a summer to begin with, it basically rained for two months straight.

I still think the Annabelle will be ok, you just need to keep it well watered until it gets established. Water it deeply at least once a week unless you've had some heavy rains.
