View Full Version : Lavatera Assurgentiflora Pruning Question

09-04-2004, 10:52 AM
Hello All!

We are having the house painted this month and this tree mallow needs to be pruned back a bit, as does the Amorpha Fruticosa. We are no where near their dormant season, so I want to be careful not to shock them too much.

Any advise would be most gratefully received.

The Lavatera is about 12' X 10' in diameter and the Amorpha is about 8' X 8'.

Many thanks for taking the time to respond!

Lavatera doesn't care much - it will be back. I would be a little more judicious with the amorpha - minimize what you remove.
