We live in planting Zone 5 of New York state and have 2 of these bushes. We have a lot of seed pods and would like to know how to care for them, if we need to plant the seeds when ripe or if they seed themselves. Also would like to know about pruning in the fall in our chilly climate conditions. Is it advisable, or should we wait until spring? By the way, these are brand new bushes from this spring and they are very 'leggy' at this time of fall.
