tacoma esperanza

shelianewberry1945 added on February 15, 2018 | Answered

My esperanza didn't loose all its leaves --we had a very mild winter- but they are tattered and not at all attractive... How do I handle this plant now with spring (early) coming on.. Its already had a light trimming in the fall . do I cut the whole plant down just to get new leaves. Maybe I should just strip the leaves?

I would simply cut the plants branches by one third. This will help them to come back just fine. Here is an article for more information on the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/esperanza/esperanza-plant.htm
