Is this an azalea? What's wrong with it?
The previous owner never did a stitch of yard work. All the shrubs had never been touched and were overgrown w/brush/weeds when we moved in.
I uncovered this little guy while weeding. I've been here 2 years and never knew this existed (it was in a far corner part of the yard--a bit of a "wild" spot).
I dug it out from the brush and miraculously, it bloomed this spring, but barely. The blooms look like azalea flowers. Does anyone know what species this might be???
Also, the leaves are spotted-some tiny white spots and a few brown. Is this fungal, or lacebug?? I was thinking of spraying it with Neem oil, but I wans't sure if this damage was done many years ago and whether or not there was anything I could do to help it.
It's not the healthiest looking plant, but has some new growth. I want to help it along..any thoughts??
