Zone 5b and 6

These are root-hardy in cold winter areas of 5b and 6. In early spring, cut all of the stems down to the ground.

New flowering will occur starting in June and run all the way through frost. It will grow to mature size during that season.

Zones 7 - 9

In early spring, prune out several of the oldest, thickest stems every few years. This will reduce the size, remove dead branches and leave the younger stems for the best bloom.
