My Rhodies Are In Trouble? HELP
I only have two rhodies in the front of my house (SE exposure). All winter they behaved like most rhodies do; when it went below freezing their leaves curled up and pointed down. Now the leaves are reddish-brown and curled. The almost looked like they were torched around the edges into the middle. I am not sure if this is a good description but they look bad and sad. One is completely in that condition. The older rhodie has one side that is in that condition. They weren't protected this winter. Could it be that we had little snow protection? I gave them some slow releasing fertilizer that is in the form of tiny round blue balls last weekend.
Should I prune off the dead looking leaves or just leave the rhodies alone for now. The one that is complete distraught is only 3 years old this spring and never set a bud yet.
Thanking you in advance,
