    HELLO...
    I live in Northern Ontario....Thunder Bay..
    We have a BEAUTIFUL Rhodo....BUT..this year it came up and the leaves were fairly curled..
    Now the blooms are dying as they are trying to open.
    We had a winter of very poor snowcover, and then a dry spring
    We have watered the rhodo very well, and also fed with Muracid.
    the blooms are all shrivelling and the leaves continue to stay fairly curled...We see no bugs on the plant..

    HELPPPPP !!!

    Yes: Sounds like it froze and died during the winter. Note: distressed plants are not helped by fertilizer unless they have a nutrient deficiency AND the fertilizer used provides the deficient nutrient(s) in the needed amount.
