      • Unfortunately, it died

      I will say up-front that this bush most likely died, at least partially, due to our own mistakes. It shipped to us dormant while we were still in a period of time where there could be frost We probably should have watered it more often while we had it inside, but we didn't want to over-water it, either. It did not survive long enough to be transplanted outside.
