Homeowner Growing Tips: Known for it's large, symmetrical, tight blooms and is a favorite in northern climates because it flowers on new wood. It can be pruned in the fall or spring, or also in mid to late summer once it is done blooming. The blooms tend to collapse because they are so large and heavy, so staking may be necessary. Leaving a framework of about 2' will help support the new growth and result in less flopping.
