The leaves may look sick but the flowers are gorgeous. Sick how? Kind of brown and cylindrical or spotty?

Thanks Stella, I'm really surprised my Rhodie had such beautiful flowers on it, because last year when I planted it a lot of the plant died. I ended up cutting a lot of the dead sections off.

Sounds interesting maybe I should check into that, but have to check into getting a new roof first.

How beautiful. My rhodies and azaleas are far from blooming. The azalea in full sun has just started to sprout new leaves. Was worried until I checked last year pictures and saw that it is kind of a late starter normally, and we are two weeks out from last year as it is. It was a hard winter and the rodies are awful looking. Their leaves are mostly curled up and brown. I wrapped them like the year before, but it didn't help this year. Very disappointing as the plants themselves looked gorgeous in the spring until bloom time.

That is probably good, mstella, since it prevents damage from late frosts. Just how late can your "late frosts" be in AK????

But it interests me since it is also a late bloomer and I do not have any azaleas/rhodies in bloom this late in the year. Do you know what variety the white one is?

No idea although we plants what are called Northern Lights azaleas as they do well up here. I have seen yellow, pink, white and gold. Even had a gold and white until the mice ate them. They were only about 12" tall and they took them down to the ground. We, like some of you 'outside' can get a frost til June 1, but I don't think it happens too often after about May 15. I think that the small rhody gets too much afternoon sun where the large one is protected from the late hot sun by a large cotoneaster bush.

My White Rhodie, didn't start flowering until after the other Rhodies, and Azaleas stopped flowering. I bought it at Home Depot last year, all I know It's a white Rhodie.

Thanks Stella, The Light color flowers is an Azalea, I bought it such a long time ago I don't remember what kind it is. I think I got it at Wal-Mart or Meijer. The darker flowers are Karens Azalea, and of course the yellow one is a Rhodie
