Should I Whack Queen of Sweden?
I can't say I wasn't warned, but sure enough, my two Queens are sending up ramrod-straight canes -- getting close to 5' now. These are bare-root, planted in February.
One of the canes has (I think) a bud at the top; the other, none.
Should I cut the canes back or let them grow? The goal is, of course, to have as many blooms as possible. I'd really like to keep them closer to 4' tall maximum, especially since I plan to add a third next year.
None of my other Austins are doing this, but then QofS is famous for extreme canes.
