Polygala myrtifolia query

Colm Fagan asked 11 years ago

My question is regarding the pruning of this shrub. I have a small specimen that has been totally stripped of its leaves over the winter and im wondering can i cut it back to encourage regeneration? Or is it just too tender? Would a light prune encourage it to put on new leaf?

Polygala myrtifolia is a superb small shrub for greenhouse, conservatory or patio outdoors in summer. It is not hardy and may well be dead.

It is evergreen and flowers almost year-round.
