Renewal Pruning

Zone Aiken, SC 8a | Anonymous added on April 6, 2019 | Answered

Is it a requirement lora pendulum especially (and other bushes) MUST be trimmed 6\" to 12\" off the ground? We recently had our lora pendulum bushes pruned down to about 25-30\" off the ground or so. A neighbor who reads a lot - said they should have been trimmed down to 6 to 12 inches. We have a crepe myrtle in the landscape (in front of the lora pendulum and the landscaping company said that was taken into consideration - keeping the bushes in proportion with the crepe myrtle. Thank you for your response. Maureen Bergstrom

    This is proper, and they did do the right thing for the situation. It will not hurt the plants to leave a little more than recommended.
