Recently Planted

My wife's Granny passed away and we were given a Dahlia to plant for her. My wife is at the service this weekend and I have been trying to keep the Dahlia going. It has been sunny and hot. I have watered it atleast once a day.

Does anyone know what might be happening and how I can save it?

Thanks for your help!

It is probably just suffering from transplant shock in the hot weather. It should recover. If you can shade it some for a few days it may help it along.

RE: Recently Planted

may i offer a suggestion? remove the blooms as they open. this will throw strength to the plant.
