Susan from what I have noticed is they do not really like to be feed. The year I did I lost plants. Just a little Bone Meal in the spring and if I see signs of mites some Bayer Rose & Flower care.

Before I could get it planted today it wilted badly and I had to water it thoroughly. Since it's not good to plant them wet I'll wait a day or so and let it dry out some before planting it. It felt heavy even today when I watered it but because it was already badly stressed I didn't unpot it to see. After a couple of hours after watering it it seemed to be coming back to life. I felt bad that it hadn't been watered but it looked good until today. If it dies I'll get a new one.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Bone Meal is amazing if you want lots of blooms. I still can't get believe the difference it makes.

I removed my new PowWow from its pot today as it was wilted badly again. It was still wet from watering yesterday but the roots barely were a third of the way down in the pot. This shocked me as the plant has many basal branches and appeared to be a strong plant when I selected it. After removing most of the potting mix or 2/3 of what was there and removing all blooms and buds I moved it into a 3 gallon nursery pot with fresh potting mix and gave it a drink of Shultz Transplant Solution. A short time later it had mostly perked back up so I'll leave it in the shade for a few days and out of the sun and wind to allow it to recover. This was very disappointing and surprising that the root system hadn't developed to match the crown.

Alright this plant is labeled as "Primadonna" but it looks more like "Pow Wow". What do you think?

It looks tall and lanky to be 'Pow Wow' to me. There is a seed variety called Primadonna Deep Rose. I think when the blooms get finished developing they will lighten up some. The cone on those looks like it's just started. I bet the petals will get longer too. I would wait a week or two and then it should look more like it's supposed to look.

Powwow Berry is looking good this year. I love it because it is not tall and never flops.

Beautiful! What a great plant. It's hard to believe it is a seed variety.
