The Q&A Archives: Snow Bush trimming

Question: How can I trim the Snow Bush, Breynia. I want to keep it small.

Answer: The average height and width of your snowbush is 5-8'. Since it flowers in the spring, you'll want to prune it in the early summer just as it has finished flowering. If you prune annually, you can keep it smaller than 5'. Prune the shrub back by as much as one third after it has finished flowering to keep it compact.

Best wishes with your snowbush!
