Rhododendrum leaves curling

The photo above is a coupe of rhododendrons at my house. The one on the right has curled leaves on a 55 degree day. We have seen this on a few properties in the last two day and believe it may be Phytophthora.
Any input from anyone?
We’re thinking Agrifos soil drench of 12oz per 100 gl.

Could be, or botryosphaeria perhaps. Check your soil moisture too.

Agrifos is a pretty good preventative but once rhodies start to decline here, that's usually not a good thing.

Are rhodies native to your area or plants with similiar cultural requirements?
