I dont think your plant will "come back " if planted out lalba. it sounds dead i'm sorry to say.
graham, in a pot your plant will struggle to maintain itself in hot weather. Especially so if using ordinary multi,purpose compost. I have 2 flamingos and the foliage is truly beautiful...not green but pink,,white, cream and pale green, all shades that can burn quite badly in hot sun. In a pot the moisture level prob is insufficient to hydrate those leaves
perhaps re potting using john innes, or a thick mulch and a saucer under the pot will help.
