Do I need to prune my tree tardiva?
When I bought it two and a half years ago they told me to prune it late fall to early spring. I cut back quite a bit at the end of winter the last two years. It is about 5 feet tall and is an attractive vase shape above the trunk. I am just not sure why I am pruning and what I am trying to accomplish. If the branches start getting long and droopy I would need to prune and the pruned branches did grow quite a bit. Do I need to prune preventively every year or can I wait and see how it grows?
I love this plant but I bought it because it's bloom in fall turned a lovely apricot the year I bought it. The last two falls it has turned white to pink and then pretty much to brown. Is there any way I can get it to turn apricot again?
