Rhodie Losing Bark


Anonymous added on September 18, 2015 | Answered

I have a big old Rhodie that's losing its bark and has yellow leaves. Should I seal the bare wood with something -- wax? I don't want it to die. THANK YOU.

The yellowing leaves and loss of bark is likely a sign of disease or insects.

Inspect the plant to see if you can identify any culprits.
Neem Oil is a good treatment as this works as both an insecticide and fungicide.
Do not try to cover the bark. This can lead to more disease issues.
