Prune after the blooming cycle is over to encourage a quick re-sprout, and prune again in late summer. When winter comes close, mulch the roots .The shape of this plant depends on how much it is pruned. It will form a creeping mound, if left untrimmed, or a low bushy shrub with regular light pruning.
