Help! One rhododendron bloomed, the other didn't!
Purchased together and planted two years ago. Last year beautiful blooms on both.
This year blooms on only one (bloomed a little over a week ago); the other: no blooms but putting out new leaves. The are planted under -- but not close to the root system of -- a peach tree. They are about eight feet from each other and stand a little over four feet tall. I have fed them both Holly-tone at the time(s) and the in the amount suggested.
Does anyone have a clue as to why one didn't blossom?
I also have two small azaleas in the front of the house left by the former owner; they have bloomed faithfully for three years, but this year they didn't bloom either! There is no sign of disease on any of them. In fact, the rhodo that didn't bloom appears to be the heartier of the two. What could be going on?
