butterfly bush

Asked February 23, 2020, 12:58 PM EST

I usually prune my butterfly bush back to about 8-10" at the end of February. However this winter has been so mild that the leaves never dropped and in fact are still green. Is it safe to prune it? Thank you for any information you can provide.

It is fine to prune the butterfly bush back to about 18 inches from the ground now.
