Pruning a Butterfly Bush

cwsomm21222 added on November 17, 2011 | Answered

I started a lavender Buddleia davidii hybrid by seed this year. It has 5 canes with a few small branches coming off the main canes. Winter is beginning to make itself felt in Baltimore and I wanted to know if I needed to prune my young butterfly bush, and if so, then how? It flowered this year and I cannot wait until next year, but want to ensure that I do everything right!
