<p>If only part of your rhododendron appears to have died off, it's possible that the plant is experiencing some stress or damage that is impacting only certain parts of the plant. Moving the plant again may cause further stress and damage to the roots, so it may not be the best option right now.</p>
<p>Before taking any action, it's a good idea to carefully examine the affected parts of the plant to determine the cause of the problem. Here are a few things to consider:</p>
<ul>
<li>
<p>Is the plant getting enough water? Rhododendrons need consistent moisture, especially during dry spells. If the plant is not getting enough water, it may cause some parts of the plant to die off.</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>Is the plant getting enough nutrients? Rhododendrons need acidic soil and regular applications of fertilizer to thrive. If the soil is too alkaline or lacking in nutrients, it may be causing some parts of the plant to die off.</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>Are there any signs of pests or disease? Check the plant carefully for any signs of insect infestation or disease. If you see anything suspicious, it may be worth consulting a professional landscaper or horticulturist to help you diagnose the problem.</p>
</li>
</ul>
<p>If you can't identify the cause of the problem, or if the plant continues to decline, you may want to consider removing the dead parts of the plant and focusing on rejuvenating the healthy parts. This could involve pruning back dead branches, applying fertilizer or soil amendments, and making sure the plant is getting enough water.</p>
<p>Overall, it's important to be patient and observant when dealing with a plant that appears to be struggling. Rhododendrons are hardy plants, but they do require some special care to thrive. With some careful attention and a little bit of TLC, you may be able to save your plant and restore it to its former glory.</p>

What Is Wrong With My Rhododendron?

<p>I have a large rhododendron that we moved a couple of years ago and has been fine up until this year. From the front all appears well and the plant has plenty of buds. From the top and back of the plant, it looks as though much of it has died, half at least. Should I move it? Is there anything I can do to prevent it from dying? </p>
