Pruning Copperleaf Plant in Fall


trish1001 added on October 27, 2017 | Answered

I fell into my copperleaf plant and broke it up so it really looks like crap. Would it hurt the plant to cut it back in Oct. so it will be one size come spring?

I don't see a problem with this. Pruning is a good part of maintaining the shape of the plant. You will be safe to do so.

Here is an article for more information on the care of the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/acalypha/growing-acalypha-copper-plants.htm
