Answer: Glad you like our website and our plants! The term cutting grown means that those particular plants began as cuttings from a parent plant rather than beginning life as a seed. This is important when we want to exactly match a parent plant, especially if there are male and female varieties and we want to be able to identify the males from the females (for flower and seed production, or because one has a better growth habit than another). Cutting grown plants usually flower earlier than seed grown plants, which is important in a landscape.
As for pruning - there are only a few rules; prune immediately after flowering (if your shrubs flower) so that the plant will have time to produce new flowering shoots for the following year's flower display. And, don't prune late in the season. Pruning encourages the development of new shoots which will need several weeks to mature before they can harden-off for winter weather.
Hope this sheds some light on the topics!
