Purple Loropetalums Are Huge

Q: The purple loropetalums in front of our home are outrageously huge and out of control. We trim often but they have just gotten way too large. Can we saw them all the way down and trim into shape as needed?

A: Honestly, I think you should pull them out and replace them with something more manageable. There are small-sized loropetalums that would work fine. ‘Crimson Fire’, ‘Purple Diamond’, and ‘Daruma’ are good ones to consider.
