Michelle,

Don't prune it after about mid summer. The buds are set in the late summer to fall and so late pruning removes potential bloom buds. Also in order to have good bloom it needs lots of sun. Shade will reduce bloom potential. Finally don't over fertilize with nitrogen as this promotes growth at the expense of blooms.

Thanks again for the question. Please stop in any time we can help.
