Rhododendron Plants


CarolynMacLear added on December 1, 2016 | Answered

I have two yellow rhododendron bushes that I planted at the same time in good soil last spring. One is doing great. The other looks like a lost cause. What went wrong? Is there anything I can do? I fertilized them with Hollytone in the spring and this fall.
