Josephine STILL a one stem wonder?
I have hard pruned her the last 2 years, and still she gives me one stem! What else can I do to encourage more basal growth? I have thought of whacking her off almost (but no quite) to the ground after her first bloomtime to stimulate more basal growth next year. I'm not sure if this would help or not. My Crystal Fountain got really accidentally chopped off her first year, and has sprouted multiple canes! And she was whacked off to nothing more then a bare 6 inch stick in the mud literally!
Josephine is now supposed to be in her leap year.
