Berberis Thunbergii Question regarding pruning

Never made pear but have waited up to 18 months for a wine to clear (sugarbeet) You can get stuff to add to wine to clear it but I never used it

The leaves of the Zantedeschia which is what's usually referred to as arum lily are longer and more pointed looking and have a different texture.
