I have a Snow White™ Mockorange. Its growth is erratic, is this typical? When is it best to prune the shrub? Does it bloom on new wood?

Timing is important when it comes to pruning a mockorange.

Yes, Snow White™ Mockorange flowers on new wood. Prune right after it flowers to avoid cutting off next year's flower buds. As with any shrub, remove any branches that are weedy looking to clean up the overall appearance.

Thanks for writing!
