Last fall I brought my 18" plant in container in for the winter. All leaves fell off and this spring 2 new leaf sprouts have come from 5 inches above the soil with some nice looking leaves. Do I wait and see if any leaves come from the upper bare branches or trim them off. Portland Oregon. Thanks Barb

If your plant has started regrowing leaves, that is a good sign.
I would not prune at this time.
