QuestionMy loropetalums seem to bloom all summer. When should they be trimmed back? They are already in full bloom. Also, what are the white trees blooming now that you see out in the woods when you drive down a highway?


AnswerWhile loropetalums can have scattered blooms throughout the season, their peak bloom is now. They are loaded with blooms. Prune only if needed, after this period of bloom. The trees in the woods could either be wild plums or serviceberry trees. Dogwoods are just beginning.
