Camellia Pruning

Jkelly922 added on March 2, 2017 | Answered

I inherited some limbed-up lanky top-heavy plants. Is it ok to cut them back to 2 feet to encourage new growth at the bottom? They are now about 8 feet tall.

Severe pruning should be done after the plant is done flowering.
You can prune 1/3 or up to 1/2 of the shrub.
