I have a bush with green curly leaves with a cream colored lacy edging around the leaves. Can you tell me the name of this and if it needs to be cut back or not?

Thank you

I'm not exactly sure what your shrub is; perhaps a variegated willow (Salix integra)? If so, you can prune in the spring just as new growth begins. If it is a flowering shrub, it's not a variegated willow and you should wait until after it finishes flowering. At that time you can remove up to one-third of the plant material without harming the shrub.
