I recently bought an Annabelle hydrangea but as soon as I planted it, I started seeing brown spots on some of the flowers, they were drying out, slowly and it seems I've lost half of the plant which was rather large when I bought it, paid 40 dollars for it.
I called Sheridan Nurseries where I bought it from and was told because of the heat we've been having it's showing distress. I've been watering it and gave it food for transplant but in vain. In fact, more stems are just getting brown now from the bottom. Anyway, I was told if I wasn't happy with it, I could return it but I really feel stupid taking it and maybe it's not going to die on me.
Should I return it, or is there still hope it will survive......has anyone ever seen this kind of problem?
