Q.Have I Killed My Plant?

marilyncpy added on April 14, 2020 | Answered

I started pruning this big bush which I’m not sure might be a sweet pea bush (could be wrong). It was overhanging the edge of the garden bed so I thought I’d trim it back all the way only to find I had hit woody stems at the bottom! Will it grow back or am I stuck with the ugly woody part on display at the bottom?

There are two ways to prune this shrub, which is a Sweet Pea shrub.

One is a VERY light pruning. The other is a complete cut-down to the stump. Anything in between will leave you with a large woody mass in view.
