I have two mounding gaillardia plants. We have been having a brutally hot summer, but they have weathered it just fine. They were both blooming abundantly, and now the blooming has slowed. One of the plants is shriveling, turning brown and dying for no apparent reason. I want to replace it with another, but am concerned that whatever's killing it will kill the next one. What should I do?
|Gaillardia can be short-lived when summer weather is brutal. You can replace your dying plant with a healthy new one. The problem is not a disease but a result of a weak plant trying to cope with hot weather. I'd go ahead and replace it. Good luck with your new gaillardia!|
