Although tender to frost, plants will grow back quickly in springtime in USDA hardiness zones 8 and 9. Prune during the growing season only to remove spent flowers or occasionally pinch to stimulate branching. Since flowers form in new growth, prune early in the spring in order to not reduce flower display. Older plants benefit from rejuvenation type pruning where most of the taller stems are cut back to a node close to the ground..
