Another Rhododendron In The New Planter Area

Not easily discouraged, and in no way going to accept not having plants on the side of the house after tearing out all the previous plants, I got another rhododendron for the new bulb out planter while the original rhododendron continues to fight for its life.

Looks like the first rhododendron isn’t going to make it. The leaves are sagging again. Maybe, as I’ve learned, the soil isn’t acidic enough. Maybe it’s pests. Or lack of sunshine though it’s a shade plant. Or drainage still isn’t happening though almost a foot above ground level.

Whatever.
