An untidy campylogynum show great improvements after cut back.
Note old branches in there.(204)

Seedlings of (campylogynum (yellow) x Tessa Dane)  also an untidy bunch
behave very well after cut back. (206)

Roger had a quite severe haircut on Friday but it only served to emphasize his bald spot. I'll show him this picture, to give him hope. ;D

After seeing that result my Rhododendron oreotrephes is getting a severe haircut after it flowers.  It is getting very scruffy.

This morning my McBeath's form of rhododendron Thomsonii was 7' tall and looking very shabby.   Now it is only 2' tall.   Time will tell if it survives.

Crumbs! That sounds  drastic, but I'd have high hopes for a good recovery Keep us posted.

That's how it is! I can't understand why my wife always demands that I have to take a haircut :-\

However, I have decided to give some of my rhodos regulary haircuts.

I guess when the plant was looking so good you had to give it a new fence to match it  ;) ;D ;D

Hej.
No  one year later my Rh. Furnivall's Daughter look like this. (go back and compare the photos)
From the surrounding plants one can imagine how big it was before cut back.
