Pruning Chindo Viburnum - jmooney - 08-14-2008

Plants about five years old. Central leader has grown straight up so it is double the height of the rest of the plant, with no side branching. Some plants have more than one leader like this. Should I prune these back to encourage rest of plant to grow, or can I expect these leaders to fill out next year. If I should prune them, how much should I lop off? Thanx!

If you let Chindos grow, they will get very large. You can prune them either by cutting back the leaders to the height of the other branches or but back all the branches to the same height.
