Q.Pruning my Butterfly Bush

Zone Coatesville Pa. | Godly Love added on November 19, 2015 | Answered

I have a beautiful butterfly bush in my front yard and it’s getting so big that I cut it back in November. I didn’t cut it all the way down to the ground but just enough to see over it. I hope it will stay in bloom and not die. Please help.
