The Q&A Archives: Butterfly Bush

Question: I have a butterfly bush that has gotten so tall. Should I trim it off? Someone said to trim way back and another person said not to. If so is it to late? Thank you.

Answer: It's not too late to prune your butterfly bush. You can either reduce the overall size by pruning it back to a more manageable size, or you can cut it down to almost ground level. Either way, your butterfly bush will respond with new growth when the weather warms. Enjoy!
