The Q&A Archives: Bluebeard

Question: Just purchased Blue Mist Bluebeard which blooms here in late August. It's in bloom now (forced?). If I cut it back now (June 4), will it bloom again later this year, or do I just enjoy it now, cut back in Spring and wait for it to bloom on new wood in late Summer, 2006?

Answer: I'd enjoy the flowers now, cut it back when flowering is finished, and hope it blooms again in late August. Next year it should bloom on time. Enjoy!
