Dwarf Purple Gem Rhodie
I have had this plant three years. It has been in the same spot all three years. It receives a fair amount of sun...I'd say about 4-5 hours of dappled sunlight. The Rhodie is planted very near a large White Pine tree. I live in Upstate NY, zone 3 and 4. I noticed the 2nd and 3rd year (this year) it looks the same, what I would call 'stemy'. All of the stems have leaves on them and it does still bloom decently but I know next to nothing about Rhodies and have no idea if this 'stemy' look is normal. Sometimes the leaves yellow a bit and/or fold a bit. From the pic you can see some yellowish leaves along with some that have rolled. I have treated the Rhodie with Miracle Grow Miracid and notice this does help the yellowing somewhat but not entirely.
Any suggestions on what is going on with this Rhodie?
