Reddish Brown Rhodo Leaves
I have a couple of Rhodos along the eastern side of my home, and they recently started turning reddish brown on several leaves each (more red than brown). I have some lamium in the same bed, as well as bugleweed as ground covers, and no other plants. I read that rhodos/azaleas do not like competition from groundcovers (ie pachysandra, myrtle, etc) does anyone think this is the case? An important note is that these were transplanted in early spring from another location, not on my property. I pruned them back to encourage them to develop, and fertilized with hollytone. They did get a nice amount of green growth, following their transplanting. Hope this note helps. Thank you!
