|Do you prune the razzleberry bush and tree? If so, what time of year? We just purchased both kinds and the tree needs to be shaped some. If I do so will it hurt it?

|Razzleberry is Loropetalum chinense 'Monraz', a moderately fast growing shrub, reaching 4'-6' tall and 4'-5' wide. Some are trained as trees and you can maintain the tree shape by rubbing out any buds that develop along the trunk of the plant. Razzleberry produces clusters of flowers at branch ends almost all year around. You can safely prune your razzleberries at any time to control or enhance the growth. They will respond to pruning by producing new flowering shoots. Be careful not to prune too severely or they will stop flowering until they recover.
