I had this rhododendron in my front yard. Obviously, it's not doing very well. The leaves are yellow & sort of droopy, a bunch of branches are dead, and some of the buds from last year didn't even bloom. This morning I moved it. I had read that they have a wide shallow root system, but this one didn't seem to have many roots at all. Here it is in it's new home after being pruned & watered with some rooting hormone. The ground there was quite rocky, so I'm hoping rhodos like drainage. Phew! that was a lot of work!
