|I have 5 Rhodo's (same kinds) planted fairly close together (approximately 2-3 apart). The one in the middle died. I planted another Rhodo (same kind, same site) and it died. The others are doing OK. What's the deal? Should I dig up the site and amend it? The Rhodo does well the first year, but over the winter it wilts (leaves fold up) and then never recovers. It seems that the other Rhodo's also "wilt" during the winter--especially when it gets really cold, but they perk back up when the weather turns warmer at various times during the winter. In the spring they are OK. The one that dies, stays all folded up and when I check it: it's dead.
