Explains how to plant or transplant rhododendrons and azaleas. Discusses soil, fertilizer, and water needs. Covers cultivation, winter damage, pruning, propagation, and problems such as nutrient deficiencies and insect pests.
If planted in a suitable habitat, native plants are well adapted to Central Oregon soils and climate. When grown in the right conditions, native plants experience less environmental, insect, and disease damage than nonnative plants.
Check winter houseplants for brown leaf tips, wilting, dropping of lower leaves and little or no new growth - all signs that your plant may be in trouble.
