Pruning Native PlantsFor some reason, many gardeners have been reluctant to prune their native plants, thinking that if they did, those plants might never recover or worse, just drop dead.
Seems counter intuitive doesn’t it?

So how should we prune our native plants?Steve and I are not saying that you need to clip everything into a ball to make it look like a formal garden.
General rule: Prune after flowering
It might seem risky, but if you only prune lightly, then you’ll be rewarded with a much better looking plant.
