    In time, mock orange shrubs may get gnarly looking or become less productive. If this happens, you can give the whole shrub a hard rejuvenation pruning by cutting it all back to 6-12 inches from the ground. This should be done in winter or early spring while the plant is still dormant. You most likely will not get any blooms that spring, but the plant will grow back healthier and provide blooms the following season.
