A.

They can grow in partial shade, but probably not do their best in full shade. These like partial shade to full sun. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/loropetalum/loropetalum-shrubs.htm

Generally pruning should happen after blooming but if you have a branch doing it's own thing; go ahead and prune it to shape.

Q. Cutting back a fringe bush.

I’m in zone 9. Can I severely cut my fringe bush back to about 1/2 its size? It’s about 4-1/2′ high at my front porch entrance. If so, what time of year?
