Hi guys! New to The Forum and I had a quick question. I bought a pretty much dead blue star lithodora from Lowe's not too long ago it was almost killed by Frost and drought. Is there anyway I can bring this beautiful plant back? I'd love to own it in my collection. I live smack dab in the middle of Oklahoma if that helps, thanks y'all!

Welcome!

If your Lithodora has some green leaves, its alive. If it has no leaves or brown leaves only, it may be dead. Check that with a "scratch test": scratch the stems with your fingernail. Green below the surface means the branch is alive, brown or hard as a rock means dead. Check in several places as part of the plant may be dead and part may be alive.

If you find signs of life, care for it as usual and wait for new leaves.
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
