Pruning Aescules (Bottlebrush) shrub in February.

Posted in Pruning at 2:41 PM by Administrator

Aesculus (Bottlebrush) is a great deciduous (loses its leaves each fall/winter) shrub for when you are looking for white flowers in July and August as well as ornamenal seed pods in September.  This plant does not require winter pruning, because this plant blooms on old wood and not current year’s wood.  You should always prune broken or crossing branches when you see them.   If you are going outside to enjoy the sun, help your Aescules by pruning all of its broken branches this afternoon.
