Do you keep this low & bushy? I grew one from a 4" pot at my old house & within a few years it was waaaay over the top of the fence, but with long & leggy branches. I've grown a new one from a cutting & need pruning suggestions. Thanks!

I rarely prune it, it just sprawls for me. it's not even 3 feet tall and about 3-4 ft wide. I had one at my other house that was the same way. You sure it's Paisley? There is another spotted one I had it my other garden that was tall.
Flowering Maple (Callianthe picta 'Thompsonii')

They are fine with pruning. In heavy frost winters, I have some that I have to cut down to the ground. Paisley has never been one of them though.
