Non flowering rodhodendrum

I HAVE A RODHODENDRUM SINCE SPRING LAST YEAR, THAT I TOOK FROM THE WILD. IN WINTER TIME I NOTICED THAT THEY HAD FLOWER BUDS, BUT IN THIS SPRING WHEN THEY OPENED I SAW ONLY NEW LEAVES. i WENT TO THE SAME PLACE WHERE I TOOK IT FROM, TO SEE THE OTHERS, AND SURPRISINGLY THEY HAD ONLY LEAVES IN THE ENDS OF THEIR BRANCHES INSTEAD OF NEW FLOWERS.MY QUESTIN IS IF THERE ARE NON FLOWERING RODHOS, OR MAYBE THEY ARE BIANUAL. THANKS. ANHERIS

All rhododendrons flower except during the years they lose the blooms to stress or a late frost. Transplanting the rhododendron from its native site might've stressed it enough to prohibit its blooms for a year. It is odd that the rest of them in the site failed to bloom, as well. Maybe their site is crowded with so much competition that the plants are more focused on survival than producing beautiful blooms. Mulch your plant and water it during dry spells this year. If you give it a little TLC, it may reward you with blooms next spring.
