Pruning over-grown rhododendrons

Landscape plants are not supposed to block windows, or encroach on sidewalks or driveways. A reliable method of turning an old overgrown rhododendron into a full and valuable feature in the landscape works because rhododendrons have lots of dormant, or latent, buds on their trunks and branches. The best time of year to prune rhodies is soon after their blooms have faded.
