Wax myrtle pruning
I live in Houston and didn't have time to trim long stem growth off my wax myrtle this spring or summer, so it's looking unkept and crazy. I want to trim those long sprouting stems back for a pretty look this fall, and it is now late August early September. Will it hurt my shrub if I do this now?
