Pruning a golden euonymus - Knowledgebase Question

The golden euonymus (japonica) I recently bought is supposed to grow to 6' tall. I know these shrubs can tolerate heavy pruning, but could mine tolerate being pruned to a height of 3-4'?

Yes, you should be able to keep it at that size without too much trouble. These take shearing well, and you can also selectively prune some of the longer branches to maintain a fairly symmetrical outline. Prune in early spring through mid summer. Avoid pruning in the fall.
