Should I give up on these rhodies?

6 years ago

I went out to do some spring clean up yesterday - wow, so many things have come up already! I just loved it.

However, my rhodies are looking sad. These are two little supposedly hardy rhodies (I think one of them is Northern Lights) which I bought about 2 years ago - they surely "survived" the winters but then they have not thrived. Very few flower buds if at all.

I know that rhodies probably will take time to establish themselves, but should I give them more years in this harsh climate, or just give them up and go with something that I can enjoy more? If I have all the space in the back yard then yes, I will leave them alone, but I do not! Also, I am wondering if they will ever do well even if they survive winter after winter without really thriving.... what do you think?
