Rhoda worth saving???

Hi Everyone,

I purchashed my home about 2 years ago. Last year I was looking at the rhoda they had in the back yard and it really wasn't very health, so I cut back all the dead branch's and such at the end of the year.

Now at the time I thought that the fact there was moss growing in it was werid, but figured it would clear up. Now this year, I see more of the leaves have turned brown, and the bud's have started to turn a white/grayish color. So my quesiton is this. Is it worth it to try and save this? or should I just dig it up and start over fresh?

I will try to attach some photo's if I can.

I would move it to a protected spot in a prepared flower bed. Out in the lawn is not a place for a Rhododendron. It's too exposed, and the grass is competing rootwise for moisture and nutrients.
