Spring is the best time to prune your shrubs. Burning bush should be just now displaying its fall color and Rose of Sharon will be slowing down its growth for the season. Since pruning encourages new growth, spring is the best time to prune. If you prune now, new growth won't have time to harden off and will die over the winter months. Wait until early spring to do your pruning.
