Q.Rhododendron Issue

Zone Laurel Maryland | Anonymous added on June 29, 2021 | Answered

Part of my rhododendron plant which we planted this spring looks wilted and unhealthy. The other branches seem ok. I am not sure if sun or water is to blame. The plant gets full sun but the healthier side gets less sun. Thanks for any help!
