Callistemon pallidus pruning

Postby retropants » Thu Apr 20, 2017 5:08 pm

I normally just gently prune my lemon bottlebrush plant, but it is getting a bit too big for its boots, and I'd like to attempt a more serious haircut. When it's finished flowering, of course. Is this a good idea, or will I end up with a bare twig tree?
