Rhododendron Plants
Q.

pruning large rhododendron

Zone Zone 6 | sthompson added on June 16, 2015 | Answered

I have a very large rhododendron right outside the front door of my condo that I am getting ready to sell in the next couple of months. I have been renting the condo for about 4 years and they never pruned it. It really needs to be pruned back before I sell my condo. It is beautiful but huge. Probably 5 foot tall and 3 or 4 feet wide. It is starting to encroach on the front sidewalk leading to the front door. Can I cut it now without killing it? I know it may take a year or so to rebloom, but I don't want to kill it. Thanks for any help you can give me.
