Should I prune this Arnold Red honeysuckle?
I guess last winter was really rough. Even my tough as nail Arnold Red honeysuckle suffered!!! Look:
When I scratched on the branches, they appeared to be not really dead (I think). However, they are just not budding out. However, in the meantime, there is some aggressive growth coming up from the ground! It is so fast that I see daily growth!!!
What should I do? Should I just leave it alone and see what happens? OR just prune off all of the non-budding branches now (pretty much ALL of them then!)?
I would very much appreciate your advice! Thanks.
