Need advice..

I just received five 3" pots of M.s. 'Gold Bar' from the Park's Wholesale clearance. They each have good root systems, and 12-18" of foliage which is limp, broken and tattered.

The "horticulturalist" at Parks said to cut the leaves off where they're broken, and new foliage will fill in. I'm wondering if I should just pretend it's spring, and give them a full haircut. Both the P.v. 'Shenandoah' (potted) and M.s. 'Gracillimus' (bareroot) were fully trimmed.

I'm potting them up to 3/4 gallon nursery pots for now, and will plant them out, probably in late summer.

Sure, go ahead and cut them back. There is still plenty of time for them to refoliate this season, although blooming is likely not an option. But it won't hurt them a bit.

A week later, and they're already putting out new foliage. Cool!
