Wilting Cerinthe Purpuranscens

Zone zone 8. Sonoma, CA | Anonymous added on June 30, 2016 | Answered

I just bought 2 lovely Cerinthe purpuranscens and potted them yesterday. This morning they were thriving. I just looked at them and they are wilting! They are in full sun right now and we are having a heat wave. Any suggestions as to what I can do to save them?

    Potted plants will need extra water when summer temperatures rise above 85 degrees.
    Extra watering and even sheltering them from the hottest part of the day will help your new plants adjust.

    Here is a link about the care requirements.
