Answer: Unfortunately, there are several diseases and foliar problems that can affect rhododendrons. Transplant stress can sometimes contribute to their occurrence. Another possible explanation is that the wilting plant is simply not rooting as well as the healthier plant. You might want to take a leaf sample to your county extension (391-9840) and/or to the place where you bought your plant for some consultation as to the cause of the problem and suggested steps to take.
