I have a very large chameleon bush which is more the size of a tree now. I want to cut it back as much as I can. Will this hurt the plant? Will it grow back? If I end up with just branches, will it come back? Help Dianne

You can cut back the plant by up to 1/3 a season with causing it harm. Eventually it will grow back, but you can continue to cut it back by 1/3 each year until you reach the size you desire.
