Ordered this plant through Home Depot.com on July 1. It was delivered 15 days after ordering it. Plant looked stressed out as in dehydrated, with broken branches, yellow leaves, and most of buds broken. I planted it in good soil and nurtured since July 15, 2017. It is planted in a sheltered area that gets morning sun and filtered in the afternoon. I took care of it daily! It bloomed some, but flowers are small and shrivelled quite quickly. Also, flowers have ANTS! Have not seen this in other flowering shrubs I've grown, except peonies.
Also, plant is not deer resistant. I put deer proof granules around the area where it is planted; deer nibled on the tips, regardless. I am not happy with this plant. But yesterday, I was told by Home Depot online customer service that the warranty period only covers 90 days and it has expired as of October 1, 2017. I really wish to return this plant, or get some credit for it. What do you advice?
