False Indigo Plants

False Indigo

Anonymous added on July 15, 2011 | Answered

Will it hurt to cut my false indigo back before fall? Due to all the rain and high winds, it has gotten really sloppy and I can't keep it upright at this point. I have tied it up, but the wind is pushing it over and covering other plants in that flower bed. I love the plant and will deal with it if I can't cut it back.

It should be okay to go ahead and cut the plant back, provided it has finished flowering. I would only perform a light pruning at this point, however, and then resume in fall or it might even be better to wait until spring, depending on your region's winters.
