Potentilla fruticosa....
My shrub is all leggy (brownish), but still flowers nicely. I will be transplanting early on next year. Can I give it a good prune? not a light one?



I have cut one of these shrubs right down to six inches above ground level and it produced fantastic new growth, the following year.

Hi, yes you can, it's pruning group 10, early to mid spring, cut back previous years growth to about 1/2-1" annually, Derek.
