Re: Rhododendron sinogrande CCHH.8079 I have a sinogrande rhododendron given to me by someone to remember her daughter. I have now had it for one season. I had it for about six months in a large pot and had been told not to transplant it right away because it had been root pruned. Once it was transplanted very early last year (maybe March) it threw up new growth almost immediately and it was a wonder to watch the new set of leaves. But I have grave concerns for its health as its lower leaves look very sad, and there is clearly a pest...which I have assumed is weevils and despite trying both a liquid type of pesticide and some kind of biologic solution last year (nematodes maybe)...I really dont think it has worked. Hence my reaching out to anyone with knowledge about sinogrande rhododendrons. I really want this plant to live and though the newer leaves look okay I am quite worried that too many of the other leaves may fall off. Also, somewhere in my wanderings through the internet I read that sinogrande dont like it below 10 degrees and this year of course it got quite a bit colder than that. I sheltered the plant from wind but did not mulch it. Should I. This is my first post to the UBC Botanical Garden forum.
