You can do this with almost any shrub. It just takes careful planning, and a thorough knowledge of exactly how plants will grow. You will want to trim all but one main leader, and then prune where you want the first split. After you will be maintaining where branching splits occur. You will then keep any growth below your original split trimmed off. This will be a constant process.
