When is the best time to prune my honeysuckle butterfly bush?

by | Mar 9, 2010 | Resources, Market News, Ask Pahl's Market

Dear Kimberly,

Honeysuckle may need to be pruned after they are planted. This should also be done in early spring or late winter, removing old and dead growth, as honeysuckle will flower on new growth only. In our climate that may mean March or early April. You should prune your honeysuckle butterfly bush before the leaves break bud. You have a very beautiful and interesting plant. It is not commonly planted so we here at Pahl’s hope you enjoy having a plant that is not seen very often. It is really nice to enjoy a plant that can adapt to dry shade and also handle sun. Thanks for your question.

In the garden, Dee
