The Q&A Archives: Moon Flowers

Question: I have a Rhododendrun that I've had for years and this year it seems dead but the branches are soft to bend. It's on the North side of the house. Should I wait and see what happens while everyone else's are in bloom or just dig it up?

Answer: If the branches are still pliable, the plant may still be alive. Try pruning it back a little to encourage new growth. If it sprouts new foliage, it will be fine. If not, you may want to replace it. Best wishes with your rhodie.
