I had 2 but they don't like water or to be covered, wet & cold.One got covered by leaves in a week or 2 of lots of wind & rain.I don't think it's going to make it.I put pea gravel under it & have been going out & removing any leaves that's gotten blown around them.

I guess i will have to wait until it warms up and see what it does when it starts growing.

If anyone has any other idea's i'm listening.I don't think the other one is going to make it. we had over 5'' of rain in Dec.,3'' in Jan. and as of the 13th we had already gotten 6 inches of rain.That's unusual for us and not good for that plant because one seems to just fade away every time we get more rain,i wish the sun had shown it's face more but that has just started happening, yesterday was the first time in forever.

This is very typical behavior for Rose Campion. Mine here act the same way.

Looks just like my Rose Campion. Smiling
Mine totally disappear during our long wet and cold winters. But come back every year.
