Rhododendron Plants


Zone Southern Quebec | Colin Waters added on June 5, 2014 | Answered

I have a rhododendron plant in front of the house. Planted about 5 years ago, it has long branches with very sparse flowers at the end. Should I prune it radically? I am at the point of wanting to destroy it.

Your rhodedendron was probably damaged by the severe winter weather. which probably didn't help an already old plant. Why don't you do some heavy pruning, fertilizing, and give it a couple of years. Here's an article on rhodedendron pruning: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rhododendron/pruning-rhododendrons.htm
