Q.Burning Bushes and Azaleas

Anonymous added on October 25, 2011 | Answered

I have two larger 5′ tall burning bushes that I want to transplant. Can I cut them back low and then transplant and are there any special concerns for that? I also have azaleas that are not doing well. They are sparse and small. I want to move them into the sun again transplanting and cutting back. Please advise.

It is not necessary to cut either of these shrubs back when transplanting. In fact, the extra foliage may offer additional winter protection if transplanting in the fall. Here is an article or two on pruning each of these shrubs that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/burning-bush/pruning-burning-bush.htm
