Kerria - too late to prune?
Just found a huge Kerria in a hedge, is it too late to prune it and how far down to cut?

I would lightly trim it now and give it a severe cutback after flowering next Spring.
Surprising what you find in hedges, we found 2 camellias and a rose when I cut back a huge laurel hedge. Plus 8 feet of lawn!
We have a kerria that last month we had to cut back very drastically for a number of reasons.
It had new shoots already underneath what we pruned back and we are hopeful that we will get some foliage and flowers next year.
Thank you, may cut back half.
