Old flowers can be removed as they fade.
Weekly dead heading will help promote more flowering.
Cut back any dead or damaged branches throughout the summer. Cut back to healthy stem.
Prune back entire plant in late winter, before any new growth begins.
Remove up to 1/2 of the plants height and cut back lateral branches to help keep it's shape.
The heavy winter prune helps keep the plant upright and dense.
