Several Rhodies in my neighborhood, no one wraps them....seem to do fine in the spring. 4b

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I wrap the ones here because they are exposed to the prevailing winter wind which can cause dessication, but the main reason is that if I didn't there'd be nothing left after the deer finished with them. If it weren't for the deer and their exposure to winter winds I wouldn't bother, but it doesn't do them any harm to be burlapped.
