I bought about 20 of these. I lined my sunny front walkway with them. They are beautiful! They are easy to care for. They will keep at least a 2-3ft rounded shape (3ft in all directions) You cut them back in late fall and they will bush out in spring. You can cut off spent blooms again and again and they will re-bloom. I have had mine for over 7 years and they are still great! I would recommend that you give them more space than I did. They were tiny when I got them so I only planted about 2ft from walkway and they ended up spilling onto the walkway-so plant at least 3ft from edge. Highly recommend this plant!
"I purchased three of these and they have all grown well! You do have to prune them back in spring and again about mid July. Mine are larger than stated, but that is okay with me. You cannot kill these sturdy shrubs! Love them!!!"
