The Q&A Archives: When To Prune Beauty Bush

Question: When and how much should I prune off my Kolkwitzia amabilis beauty bush?

Answer: Kolkwitzia amabilis has an upright arching, fountain shape, growing 6'-10' in height, and flowering best in a site providing full sunshine. The plant should be sheared back to half its size after flowering to keep it neat in appearance. Beautybush is native to Central China and was introduced here in 1901. Provide average, well-draining soil, water regularly during the growing season, cut it back after flowering, and enjoy!
