Answer: The clematis might just be suffering from transplant shock. The plants like their roots in the shade and their tops in the sun. Try placing organic mulch over the soil to help cool the roots. Water only once a week, but thoroughly wet the soil. Hope the plant adjusts to its new location soon!
If the rhododendron leaf margins have notches chewed out of them, you're dealing with root weevils (a common problem with rhodies). The adults feed at night so go out after dark with a flashlight to see if you can find the critters. If so, pick them off the leaves and destroy them. You can keep them from climbing up the main trunk of your rhodie by wrapping thin cardboard around the base of the trunk and coating it with Tanglefoot. The weevils will get stuck in their tracks.
