How Far Back Can I Prune My Burning Bush?

PBC added on June 11, 2011 | Answered

I purchased a "dwarf" burning bush a few years ago and it's now 15' tall! I have pruned it each year, but last year was unable to due to health problems and now it is gianormous! Although it has a beautiful shape, it is too big for its location. How far down can I prune it?

You can prune it back by a third of its growth, but no more. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/butterfly-bush/butterfly-bush-pruning-how-to-prune-a-butterfly-bush.htm
