Identifying a plant

Posted: 15/08/2017 at 14:51

You are so sensible waiting to see what you have before you start doing anything.Has the look of a Primula sp.


Maybe a Candelabra Primula that loves moist soil.


The common name for many different sp that grow like this.


Beautiful flowers in the spring...seeds around.

Red leaves on Rododendron

Sounds perfectly normal.


Many Rhodos are evergreen.


This does not mean the leaves are everlasting.


It is quite normal for the older leaves to die and drop off.


If the buds and new growth is fine then try not to worry.


The roots are very shallow so to stop them drying out mulch them  deeply with  leaves or bought composted bark..keep away from the trunk.Give them a good watering first.

Make sure water cannot pond at the roots.
