Monarch Butterfly from Fit Jung by Bob Zeus
Hi, hope you can help. We have several rhodies fairly close to our home. One in particular has always bloomed early and several times during the year. We have always joked that it was a bit confused but secretly thought that it was probably because it received warm air from the dryer (it is about 6 ft in front of the vent). However now it looks like it is dead. My husband had been trying to get rid of dandelions by spraying them with vinegar and while it had worked somewhat I begged him to stop so that we wouldn't have a polkadot yard anymore. My mom insists that he has killed the rhodie because of the vinegar. Is this possible? None of the others have seemed to fallen to the same fate. They are well established and have been here for over 20 years. Thank you for any info you can give us.
