I planted several tiarella, neon lights this spring. They have been in partial shade, well mulched soil and kept watered as the bed they are in is all newly planted. All my other plants have done well but not these. I really want this nativar to grow in this spot(I love the chartreuse leaves). Does anyone have any suggestions?

We've grown 'Neon Lights' for several years and it's one of our favorites. Vigorous grower with long blooming period and especially love the almost 'glossy' foliage.
