A little over a month ago I planted two butterfly plants. One Orange B.P., another a Delphinium Blue. The orange one popped up immediately, and there's a straight green plant with fuzzy leaves. The only problem is that it wilts like crazy. It completely keeled over. It's watered, planted in a pot with good soil and fertilizer, and has Full sun. I tied it to a stake, but it still wilts.

The Delphinium Blue had fragile little sprouts that looked like bean sprouts, but those are gone now, I'm afraid it's sick or dead.

What can I do to save my plants??
Please Help!

on the orange one.they have a deep taproot...maybe your pot is cramping its habit?

I'm still trying to GROW delphiniums.

Thanks a lot! Hopefully my delphiniums will grow.
And I think I was frying the roots on both of them- I kept them in full sun. Hopefully they'll turn around.
Thanks a lot for your help!
