Q.Loropetalum chin, ruby
Just lost our ruby loropetalum, all dried up, when just two days ago was very healthy. Live in Asheville, NC…gets plenty of attention. Can I save it by cutting it all the way back, leaves are still on?
Chinese Fringe does well with pruning, though early spring is the best time.
