I want to plant 3 Cape Mallows-Tara's Wonder. Can I keep them topped and rounded in shape?

It may be difficult to keep cape mallows looking neat and trim. They typically produce tall flowering stems with foliage along each stem. If you trim them into a rounded shape you'll lose some of their potential to flower.
