rhodie buds gone
Last fall my beautiful Nova Zembla had tons of buds on it. I couldn't wait until this spring to see it all in bloom. Now, almost all the buds are gone! It looks like they have been eaten, but they looked this way before any bugs were out. Could it be birds? Or could the horribly cold winter we had have something to do with it. I think there are still 2 viable buds left, but that is it. Any suggestions?
