This bush was about twice the size and blocking a window in the front of my house. I thought for security's sake, it would be a good idea to trim it, so that the window was in full view. About a month ago I started trimming...Clip, clip, clip, clip, clip, trying to make it look symmetrical - not possible! In a couple of years it will be filled it. I know this from previous experience. Click on "next" to see the new growth on a thick bare branch.
