Sarah,

After they bloom next spring do the necessary cutting to lower them to your desired height. If you prune them now, they won't have much of a bloom show next spring.

When pruning don't just "stub" off branches, but rather cut them off either at the ground or where they join another branch.

Thanks for the question. Please feel free to stop in again with another question any time we can help!
