Can I trim my Spring-blooming bridal-wreath spirea bushes now?

Asked July 21, 2017, 3:59 PM EDT

If I trim my Spring-blooming bridal-wreath Spirea bushes now, will they yield less flowers next Spring? In other words, is this too late to trim them? Thanks for your help,

Baltimore County Maryland

Spring-blooming shrubs should be pruned after them bloom. It should not be too late for them to form next years buds if you prune now. The sooner the better.

Here is a good pruning fact sheet from our website: http://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG84_Pruni...
