Chinese loropetalum does not require pruning but you can certainly cut it back to keep it from getting too rangy. You can prune it back by as much as one third without hurting it. Everywhere you cut you can expect two new stems to emerge. That should help it fill in and become dense and bushy. Enjoy!
