Flowering maple tree

Zone De Land, Fl | jhthompson243 added on July 13, 2016 | Answered

I live in zone 9 Central Florida. My flowering maple is planted outdoors, was a small specimen but is now about 7' tall. Should I wait until spring to cut it back or is it OK to do it now? Please send care instructions. . . Thanks!

Maintain the plants shape with pinch pruning, do this to maintain shape.
Overly pruning the plant can reduce flowering.
Do not shear the plant like a hedge.
Here is a link with care information.
