I bought 6 Gerbera daisies last week. I planted them and watered them; they wilted badly. All recovered but one.
Will it come back?

Gerbera daisies can be fussy about being transplanted, and even more fussy about watering. Be careful not to get the crowns of the plants wet when applying water. You can accomplish this by building a moat around each plant and flooding it with water, rather than sprinkling from above. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Hope for the best with the one that looks the worst. If the roots are healthy, you'll see new stem and leaf growth in a few weeks. If not, the other daisies may fill in the area as they grow into large clumps.
