Crossandra can be pruned in spring - late February or early March in your area. I usually prune mine throughout the growing season by gently pinching them back, but Crossandra will take hard pruning and rebound almost immediately. The rule of thumb is to trim them back to a suitable size (but not more than by one-third) in the early spring and then keep them inbounds with periodic trimming during the growing season. Best wishes with your landscape!
