The Q&A Archives: pruning ilex crenata 'Helleri'

Question: Can this shrub be pruned for shaping at this time of year in this part of Texas?

Answer: Pruning usually promotes new growth, which can be susceptible to winter kill if done too late in the season. I'd suggest waiting until spring to prune your Ilex.

Best wishes with your garden!
