My sunshine ligustrum’s leaves all turned brown and fell off. Will it come back?

I brought it inside before the first frost, but accidently set it too close to a heat vent and it seems to have dried it out. It had lots of leaf growth before this. Will it come back? Do I need to prune it? I am actually trying to make a bonsai tree out of it…

I would wait to prune until you know what is actually dead or not. These are hardy down to zone 5, so you will want to leave this outdoors all year.

That is unfortunate about the predicament, especially now knowing that it didn’t need to come inside in the first place.

It should recover, but the shape will not be the same. You will have to prune once you see what is still alive to attempt to reshape the damage into a more appealing form.
