Have I left it too late to trim these shrubs

Have I left it too late to trim these shrubs

Can you advise me if I've left it too late to prune / trim back these shrubs. They were planted few years ago & not pruned regularly. They're getting a bit too big now. ShellyAnne, Trim, Co Meath Posted: 13/03/2017

This is early summer ceanothus which can be lighly trimmed after flowering to reduce size, but it can react badly to being pruned hard back into old wood, often dying back.
