Q.Do Rhododendrons Need To Be Pruned & If So When & How Is The Best Way/time To Do So?

Zone 98662 | Anonymous added on October 31, 2022 | Answered

Just moved to Vancouver, WA. The property we purchased has multiple rhododendron bushes. Some of them had great flowers this year but some of them only had one or two. Should they be pruned in the fall to increase the blossoms next year? Is there a resource you recommend on how to care for them in a way to enhance their beauty?

Not always. The major reasons for pruning them are:
1.) removal of dead, diseased, or damaged branches,
2.) shaping of the plant, and
3.) plant rejuvenation.
