We have a Pee Gee Hydrangea tree blooming now, when do we prune if, if at all?

Pee Gee Hydrangea shrubs flower on new wood of the season so any pruning should be done in winter or early spring. Pruning would be done to maintain vigor (remove a portion of the oldest branches at the base each year) or possibly to control size and overall shagginess although it is not strictly necessary to prune it at all.
