After stems have leaf nibs on, can the bush be trimmed. I’m in Mich. We have had 60 degree weather followed by long stretches of 20 degrees and below, wich is the case now. With snow. Thanks,in advance. Jane

There are 2 plants that are commonly called burning bush. I think you are referring to Eunoymus alatus. It is basically indestructible and can be pruned whenever the spirit moves you. The one exception is to stop pruning 6 weeks before first expected frost in the fall.
