Do I trim back the branches and fertilize my SAPPHIRE SURF this spring?

Do I trim back the branches and fertilize my SAPPHIRE SURF this spring?

It really depends on how it overwintered.

In colder zones such as yours, you might find your caryopteris dies back in the winter. If so, you will need to do some trimming in the spring. Spring is a good time to do a low, balanced fertilizer to promote new growth. Or, you can top dress with compost.

Thanks for writing!
