Q.Dead Branches On Scotch Broom Plant

Zone 18017 | kellyjm added on May 24, 2020 | Answered

I have a very large, mature scotch broom plant that is currently in bloom, however there are several large branches on the back of it that look dead. If I cut them, there will be a huge hole in the plant so I’m not sure if I should just let it go?
