Anybody have any experience with pruning them?
I have one and previous owner planted on a slope so some branches are almost to the ground. It seems to be a little thin compared to others I have seen. It wasn't staked when it should have been IMO.
I am concerned about pruning because of what the Western Garden book says...may not grow back.
It is flowering now and I know to wait after that. I should have done it 2 months ago. Will pruning it force more dense growth? What do you guys/gals think?
