Dwarf rhody/azalea? Help needed.

10 years ago

This plant has mostly variegated leaves that look like azalea, but it also has some pure green leaves on one branch that look like mini rhododendron leaves. It has lovely red flowers, almost all on the green branch. It also has leaf gall, which i am removing, and spraying the plant with neem oil. It does not flower very much, but the green-leafed branch had a lot of flowers, so I'm guessing the problem is not lack of sun. Also, nearby azaleas have flowered in past years, but not as much this year. Not sure if it's the cool rainy summer, or if the fungus that affects this one is starting to affect them. There are some roses nearby, too, but they seem healthy.

Any advice appreciated!
