Question: 634-4211
Can I cut back my purple six foot butterfly bush and my Japanese Pussy Willow ? Don, Norwich, CT

Mort's Answer:
Buddleia davidii is the most hardy Butterfly bush in zone 6. You will get good branching next year by cutting it back about three feet this fall. Japanese pussy willow should be cut in the late summer and can also be helped by cutting it back by a half.
