I purchased them on the 1/2 off rack at Lowe's and they still looked "kinda" okay. I thought a little TLC would help them, but, they have gotten worse. I thought, perhaps, after they bloom for the season they die back, do they? Like lillies? Will they come back? They say they are perennials. If they are evergreen perennials I guess they are gone. HELP!!!! I do not want to pitch them out, if there is a possibility of them coming back next year. I cannot find out much about these plants on-line, except that they are for sale on alot of plant sights.
