Wendy, thank you for directing me to the rhododendron article. Since I have 2 plants near each other and the other one is doing well, the CB one may be planted too deeply. I'll try removing a little dirt and see if that helps. Couldn't hurt. Thanks again every one.
Voting for the Azalea Wars is complete. Thank you for your playing. In our eyes, everyone was a winner!
wigma, I just did some research and after reading a few articles, I think this one might be just what you need. laurajane said that she thinks you've got a Charlie Brown rhododendron, and although this article isn't specifically about "Charlie Brown's" it is about rhododendrons and I think it's a really good one.http://www.rhododendron.org/v48n2p85.htmlaurajane, I feel the exact same way. I want to hug the little bush. :-)
Wigma, I want to hug this little bush.
Thank you for your sweet thoughts.
wigma, I see people saying over and over again that if they had one more vote they'd vote for so_and_so's azaleas, but when they tell almost everyone that, I start to not believe them. However, this will be the one and only time that I will say that I really would have liked to have voted for this....if I had one more vote. There's something especially lovely about it. Thank you for posting it. :-)
I love it Wigma!
If I could cast a vote for the Most Spirited--it would be for this one!!! It exemplifies the will to live and put forth the best one can no matter the circumstances!!! This was sooooo much harder than I thought it would be, thanks for offering this one! ;-)))
Yes, joyfulli, you figured it out.
I agree with joyfulli but the flower is very pretty...
I think you should get some recognition, Wigma, for this one. Special category. By the way, it dawned on me what your username means: WI Grandma. When I first saw it, it reminded me of my grandma's name, Hilma, so I thought it was some kind of ethnic name. Clever of you!
Thanks for the suggestion lj. I would like to get a replacement in one of the beautiful colors I have seen in the "wars" puzzles.
Oh wigma! The poor baby! It's a Charlie Brown rhododendron. Mine did the same thing. The only suggestion I have, as one speaking from experience with two that died like this, is dig it up and plant something else there.
LOL Bless it's little heart. It managed to make a beautiful bloom. Good one wigma.
It's a fighter, that's for sure.
This one should get the battlers award for sure wigma :)))
A couple of buds there you should get a couple of points for that and some chuckles from me for sure. Thanks wigma.
This poor little thing has been getting worse every year, but it still comes back. Any suggestions would be welcome.
survival of the fittest.
LOL wigma. You have the real meaning of the contest.
I find it quite appealing. Those perfect things are highly overrated, Thanks for entering, wigma!
