Cut back the entire Japanese aralia shrub in late winter or early spring, just before it begins to sprout with new growth. Snip the branches 2 to 4 feet back, just above the leaf nodes, shaping the bush as desired. This type of pruning helps maintain a shrub that is dense, upright and full of blooms.
