Proper Care of Rhododendrons

May 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

The proper care of rhododendrons does not include impromptu pruning branch snapping by a person frustrated by how said shrub impedes lawn mowing.  This is what happens when someone (me) indicates that said plants are slated to be ‘taken out’, at some, undetermined, point in the future.  In the meantime, I’ll be treating these rhododendrons will appropriate respect as their shade does an excellent job of inhibiting weed growth.

It turns out that proper care of Rhododendrons involves dead-heading spent flowers to prevent fungus growth, reduce seeding, and neaten their appearance.  Pruning is also recommended after the plant has finished flowering for the year. It appears that I have an appeasement plan to execute against.
