I just bought a silver lace vine this spring and it's doing exceptionally well. Do I need to prune it or just let nature take it's course? If pruning is recommended, how much and when?

Silver lace vine can be pruned back as hard as desired in the late winter or early spring each year. (Many gardeners find it needs a very hard pruning to keep the size under control.} It blooms on new growth of the season and the pruning helps stimulate new wood and more blooms by keeping the plant vigorous. Enjoy!
