Bottle brush maintenance

Zone I believe it's 9. Southern Louisiana. | Anonymous added on August 4, 2016 | Answered

I moved to my present location a year ago. There are several bottle brush shrubs that have been allowed to grow into trees (10-15 ft). Is it possible to prune them back to make shrubs? They look like they have never had any maintenance. Can you help me?

    t may be difficult to prune it back to a shrub. You may have better luck pruning it into a single trunk tree.
