Not specifically, but it's near enough to the edge of the lawn that it gets some. Plus, it's planted with an entire bed of azaleas, also acid-lovers, and they all bloom just fine. It also gets plenty of morning sun, but none in the afternoon.

I am so disturbed, hope someone understands. And NO, they will not grow back...

Yes, I know someone will say "it's just shrubs" but they were my joy and he did exactly what I asked him not to do....

Just venting, I know of no solution.
