I planted it several weeks ago. It has been thriving in part sun with soil amended with lots of compost.

About 3 weeks ago our garden hose was leaking a lot for about a week before I realized it. The area around the viburnum was like a bog.

Once I realized it I repaired the hose which stopped the leaking. The viburnum seemed fine, but the I did not water it at all for about teb days to give it time to dry out.

Then last week I noticed it starting to wilt, so I watered it really well.

But the wilt did not go away. It's getting worse.

I've done some research and now I think it is wilting bc it was overwatered a few weeks ago. I'm worried it may have root rot.

How can I fix it so it doesn't die?

I don't want to lose it. I'm very worried... And I'm a new gardener.

Looks dry to me. 10 days without water, sounds to long. Check watering requirements out. Google, plant. If there sustable to root rot,
I would dig it up and trim roots, if necessary.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
