My plant was grafted with both pink and white. I got mad at the pink, and cut off the limbs, but not all the way. So this is what I get! I want the white!!

They do seem to bloom more if trimmed. That's a beautiful lesson you got there. Whistling

Beautiful either way. Seems that pruning does induce a lot more branching, intern more flowers. Many of the scions grafted onto root stock have a varying degree of growth.
Some are more vigorous than others.
