Rhododendrons and azaleas make their flower buds in late summer/fall. Those will bloom soon so do not remove them. When it is done blooming, pinch off the spent bloom with a slight twisting motion and a pinch. Some fertilizer for acid-loving plants is a good idea. I've provided a link to an article on rhododendron care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rhododendron/rhododendron-care.htm
