Answer: Rhododendron catawbiense 'Jean Marie de Montague'is one of the smaller cultivars, with a compact growing habit. You can keep the plants small by pruning, but you'll have to be careful in removing shoots or you'll remove the bloom, as well. It's always better to choose a plant that will fit a spot in the landscape rather than trying to alter the growth habit of a potentially larger plant. But, since you've already chosen and planted your rhodies, careful maintenance should make you, and the plants relatively happy.
