Help can I still save my plant

I am hoping someone can advice me if I can save my plant ( The bride)  Due to a family bereavement, I was not around to water my plants combined with the heatwave many of my plants have died. I have posted pictures , please let me know if I can save it or am I to late. Any advice will be much appreciated

  • It looks dead BUT scrape the top layer off the bark, just a small area, if it’s still green underneath it will still be alive so will recover, if it’s brown underneath then it’s probably dead.

    If it's green underneath, it's still alive, but I'm afraid to say it's no guarantee it WILL recover, merely that there is hope.

    It’s a big shrub, it would be better in the ground.

    Sorry, but a famous Monty Python sketch comes to mind.

  • Thanks for advice, I scraped it and I think it is dead, so sad 😭

    Don't waste it -Plant it and grow a Clematis up it for next season -I lost 1 Maple and 1 Magnolia when I moved house last year and they were about the same size as your Plant -They have made a super framework (back with a trellis when clematis gets bigger)
