When grown by the coast, plants have also succeeded as far north as Scarborough on the east coast. Flowers best in years following long hot summers.Very tolerant of severe pruning, plants can be pruned right back into old wood in order to promote fresh growth. It is best to trim new growth by 50% each year for the first three years after planting in order to promote basal shoots. Any pruning is best done in the spring.
