Strange leaves?
« on: August 15, 2020, 08:39 »
Hi, hope someone will recognise this. Had this dwarf rhododendron for over 5 yrs and the new growth is always this strange colour. It uesd to be in a pot in more sun so thinking I need to move it but soil is acid and thought they liked a bit of shade? Thank you  :)

Does the foliage revert to green in winter?
There are some interesting varieties like Elizabeth Red Foliage, which have red leaves - as the name implies, but only during summer.

Hi Mumofstig,
The older leaves are dk green and glossy as I would expect. Ive noticed the new ones are slightly mottled at the moment . So it could be the particular variety then? Its one of the plants i moved from my mums garden as a memento so don't want to lose it  :(
