kaleidoscope abelia pruning
I planted a kaleidoscope abelia last July, and lovely foliage has been growing. However, the first several inches of the branches are barren. So, as the leaves grow out, it's leaving a leafless "hole" of empty branches in the middle of the shrub.
As I gear up for spring pruning , I'm not quite sure how best to do it - there aren't really any branches that are completely bare, so if I clear out some of the middle, I'd be taking branches with leaves too.
Any suggestions are most welcome! Thanks!
