Rhododendrons are subject to many foliar problems, some due to winter drying, some to insects or disease. Unfortunately, based on your description, I am unable to tell you exactly what the problem is. You may wish to take a sample to your county extension (343-7471) for a specific diagnosis and suggested remedies. In the meantime, clean up and destroy away any dead stems and leaves to reduce the chances of reinfection.
