Help with Althea shrub!!!
I recently planted a small Althea shrub in a very moist flower bed. I read up a little and realized that the shrub wouldn't do well in that area as it seems to stay pretty damp. I have moved it to an area that is drier, but noticed the bottom part of the stem looks very light in color, it is almost a light grey. Also it looks like all of the areas that will bud have white on them. Is this normal? Is there something I should be doing or should I just wait it out? I have included a photo ti show whatvis happening.
