The Q&A Archives: Gold Star Esperanza

Question: I planted some Esperanza shrubs last summer which they did great. Now they don't look so good after a few freezes we sustained this winter in Texas. My question is do these shrubs need to be pruned or cut back to bring on new growth?

Answer: Lory,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

You can cut Esperanza back at any time. It will resprout from stems of from the ground.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
