I planted 3 of the Anemone's(Queen Charlotte) late June in a shaded area. Initially they looked
So healthy with dark green foliage. Approximately a month has gone by and now they are wilting.
Our residing area has been under extreme heat. I have watered daily either once or twice.
The plants were doing great until the past 4 days. I checked the soil around the plants and they
Were moist. Any ideas for CPR?

Hi Tbone, Welcome! to NGA

Here are some thoughts:

Were they rootbound? If so, they could be having problems breaking out of that pot-shaped mold. Although the soil around them is damp, the center of the root ball may be dry.

Or.. It is just too hot and the leaves are transpiring too fast to keep the plant from wilting. Do they perk up in the evening after the sun sets?

Last thought... Are the wilted leaves drying up? Have the tops of the plants grown fast since you transplanted them? If root production is not keeping up with leaf production, the tops will suffer from lack of moisture even though the soil is moist.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
