When and How to Prune Gold Mops
I live in Zone 7 and have three Gold Mop evergreens. I'm not sure what species of evergreen this is as the landscaper didn't keep the tags on the plants.
There's a golf course nearby and their Gold Mops are near six feet tall and fairly wide. I would like to keep mine about four feet tall, but I don't want them to end up looking like gumballs! I like their featherly appearance. How can I retain that look and still keep them more manageable? AND the big question: Isn't pruning time for evergreens in the spring?
