Answer: Crown rot can happen if the plant is set too deeply in the ground or settles too deep, or if the area is not well enough drained, or if the plant is mulched too heavily or a combination of factors. It might be worth a try to transplant it. If you feel there was a problem with the plant itself, you would need to contact the retailer where you purchased it. I'm sorry about your plant.
