Butterfly Bush

Asked April 3, 2020, 9:49 AM EDT

My butterfly bush is showing about 2 inches of growth now. Can I go ahead and prune them? I live in Havre de Grace.

Harford County Maryland

Yes, you can prune now, though technically you don't ever have to prune.

Since butterfly bush has turned out to be a non-native invasive plant in Maryland, do not compost parts with seeds, or dispose of seeded parts on-site. Bag and put out with the trash.
