Cutting back butterfly bush

libbypittsburgh
16 years ago

I planted two butterfly bushes this past summer (Buddleia - Adonis Blue). I have been told to wait until new growth appears in spring before cutting them back.

My question is: When pruning, should I:

1. Cut off the top 1/3 of the plants?

OR

2. Cut off the top 2/3 of the plants?
