A: This variety blooms on new wood. Prune late winter or very early spring before plant comes out of dormancy. Cut stems back to about a foot off the ground, just above two strong buds. Leave two to four sets of buds per stem. Straight cuts will be fine. When new growth starts, feed with all purpose fertilizer such as 10-10-10.
