The Q&A Archives: Overgrown Euryops

Question: I have 2 older Euryop plants in my landscape which are somewhat spent and wide branching. Can I prune them back and if so will they regrow to give me additional flowers?

Answer: Euryops are shrubby evergreen perennials native to South Africa. E. pectinatus grows to 6 feet and has a long flowering season, but tends to become overgrown when left alone. Cut back to side branches to control the size, and pick off the spent flowers to encourage additional blooms. June is a good time to do this in your area.
