Got me a potted Azalea for easter, HELP it's already dying!! I've never had a potted azalea from supermarket before. My kid was pleased to buy me this already bloomed pretty pink flowers in a pot for easter. And its only 3 days old and already dying! Sure I got some from a garden center in early summer, but I reckon it's too early to get some this time of the year? I tried to put it outside with temp. mid 60's yesterday while it rained some, and brought it in last night but it's not looking happy this am :(

By "dying" do you mean the leaves are going too? As evergreens, they shouldn't, how big is it? Maybe when it was dug up, they chopped the roots in half or something.
