Answer: Thirty years is a long time for a rhododendron to grow so your plants are probably in a state of decline because of age. You might be able to coax some new growth by pruning your shrubs back by about one-third. You'll lose next year's flower display but you should get multiple branches and lots of new leaves. This should help rejuvenate your shrubs. Best wishes with your rhodies!
