Answer: Based on your description I am not certain what happened to your plants however it sounds like a fungal infection of some kind. Unfortunately these types of symptoms are very difficult to diagnose long distance. I would suggest you discuss this with your retailer, especially if there was any kind of warranty involved. You might also check with your county extension for a specific diagnosis in case this is something that could infect new plants in the future. I'm sorry you had trouble with your plants.
