Q.newly planted Black Lace and Buckthorn wilting

Zone Dayton, OH 45424 Zone 5-6 | kosscp added on August 21, 2019 | Answered

I recently completed replanted 3 flower beds consisting of 81 a variety of plants. I planted 3 Black Lace 3 foot tall plants as an accent to the front flower bed, and 3 Buckthorn plants. The leaves of each seem to be wilting. Everything else appears to be dong very well. Could this be the result of shock stress of transplanting from the pots?

Absolutely! It also sounds like the product of attempting heavy transplanting and maintenance during the Summer. This is guaranteed to shock plants. The proper time to do this kind of work is late Spring, or early Autumn.

For now, you will have to hope that they take to the ground and conditions without overwatering. This can be difficult during heat, since it is easy to be tempted to water more often than necessary.

As of right now, there will be nothing you can do, except care for them as usual, and hope that they take to the ground.
