Q.Trimming Back Burning Bush

Anonymous added on April 15, 2014 | Answered

I would like to trim back my burning bush. I have read that it is suggested to do pruning when it is dormant. What would happen if I trimmed it back now? I had heard it would not turn red in fall anymore. Is that correct? This bush is 6′ tall now and I would like to trim back about 2′. Thank you!
