The correct time depends on your climate and the type of flowering shrub.

Generally, all spring and early summer flowering shrubs that bloom on last year's wood are pruned right after flowering to allow new growth to mature and set buds for next spring's bloom.

For specific advice related to your climate and each type of shrub go to Click on your state, then county and find your local Cooperative Extension Service. Contact them for information appropriate to your climate and shrubs.
