Legginess and loss of leaves at the bottom often happens as inkberry bushes age. This can be corrected by rejuvenation pruning- pruning the entire bush down to 12-18 inches off the ground when the inkberry is dormant. The best time is in winter or early spring. In coming years, it can be trimmed back by about 1/3 whenever necessary.
