Rhododendron Plants
Q.

Heavy pruning a rhododendron

Zone Marion, Massachusetts | Anonymous added on October 28, 2018 | Answered

Several years ago we bought a rhododendron at a local nursery. They told us the plant had a maximum height of 5’. It is over 8’ high. Will it survive if I cut it down to 2’ high and start over again? When is the best time to cut it?
