Very welcome Laura. Xoxo if you use powdered garden lime as a dust all around that helps kill fleas mix in some de as well and use extra stronger solution of neem oil and soap on your rhodies and soak the crap out of all the leaves bark and soil with it. Early morning or real late afternoon. It should help them. https://www.thespruce.com/lace-bug-control-1316105
@columbiariver oh yeah tough as nails is right!! Mine is in a water garden (was in a plant stand) the stand broke, so it fell to the bottom and it still came way up above the water to bloom! I'll get a pic of it soon.
