I have a dogwood( cornus ? ) I put the queustion mark because I still havent found out which one it is but I am still looking. Anyways, It has spread out due to a lack of attention on my part and has started to take over a good section of my lawn. I would like to cut it back so it doesn't protrude from my garden but my concern is that if I cut it back past the part where there is growth all i will be left with is a bunch of stems sticking out and no leaves. My question is whether the plant will regenerate new growth or whether I would be doing irreparable harm to the tree. Any advice would be most appreciated. God bless. Brian
I took a chance and pruned it back quite a bit, at least two feet. I don't know if you can tell me what varirty or give me any information on it from these pictures but any help is allways greatly appreciated.
God Bless, Brian.
