Nandina: Lanky; Can I lop it to fluff it out?

I have a Nandina (it has 'bamboo' in the name, but don't recall). It is getting very tall and lanky. I have another that is staying very compact and full.
Can I lop off height of the Nandina to cause it to 'full' out?

Thanks!

TF

you can prune the nandina. the "common name" for nandina is heavenly bamboo, but it isn't bamboo at all.

Papito... Thank you VERY much!!! That I can prune it rather severly (1/3 of canes) this spring is exactly what I needed to find out! Thanks for the directional assist!!

Terraflora,

You are welcome.

I divided my heavenly bamboos about a month ago. They are doing just fine in their new containers.
