It is best to prune shrubs, either, after the flowers drop, or before they start producing new flower growth. This can be different for each shrub, but to be sure, you can deadhead them after the blossoms fall.

Here is an article for 'hard pruning', which some of these plants mentioned can benefit from on some years: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/shgen/rejuvenation-pruning-tips.htm
