Pruning Camellia

karlakpal added on August 14, 2011 | Answered

Can I cut a large camellia bush way back to the point that it would probably not have very many, if any at all, leaves left? I wouldn't care if it didn't bloom for a couple of years. Thank you for your help. Karla Palmer

Generally, most shrubs can be pruned back by a third of their growth. Any more than this can damage the plant. Here is more information on pruning camellias:
