variegated dogwood - layering
This spring I found our variegated dogwood had layered a new plant. Early June I detached it from the mother plant and replanted the new growth with roots to a different area.
The new plant already had 4-5 shoots were about 2-3 feet above ground when I transplanted it.
It promptly dropped all its leaves and became mostly a bare plant. I have been counting the gradual reduction of the remaining green leaves that are still attached.
It has come down to 2 remaining green leaves now.
It is getting watered once a day. Is there any hope it will make it ? Is there anything else I can do. I have added some compost and alfalfa 3 weeks ago around the roots area.
