Nice Rhodie. You can't live here in the NW and not have at least one. It's perfectly shaped. I have some trimming to do on mine this year. Will never accomplish this lovely shape tho. They're pretty crazy

comment
ShelleySnyder

@columbiariver this rody has been here for over 40 years, so if we never cut it I'm afraid we wouldn't have a back yard at all!!

comment
columbiariver

You're right there! They do expand. However, I have one that grew straight up for sun. It's a pretty odd shape. Lanky! About 12 ft high and 1ft wide. It gets sun now and will get love this summer. Going to have many blooms soon too.

Perfect shape 🖒

lesliecole49

I've never seen them shaped like This! Looks great. Rhodies thrive here in the south I hear, so I expect I'll have some, just not this year. I have to have a design in mind before I can place them. Sure wish I had a garden designer for a friend!

@lesliecole49 that shape comes with lots of trimming!

Yes... I never knew you could trim a Rody like that...that is really unique and very attractive...🌺🌼

Make sure you trim right after bloom so you don't loose next year's blooms #lesliecole49

comment
ShelleySnyder

@momasherri yes your right about that! I have a neighbor that had one near his front door that grew out of control and I told him when to cut it ( didn't listen) so he cut it back to about 2ft. Tall (it was at least 8ft.) It didn't bloom the next year , but it did the year after that! They are tough!!

comment
momasherri

@ ShellySnyder they sure are tough. I cut down a near dead one and it triggered an amazing growth over the next few years resulting in exceptional blooms unlike any of the others I had. I had 10 plus huge rhodies, taller than my 1 story house.
