I cut it back and shaped it some. I have a good idea of what I'd like it to look like. I was taken by a nursery when I first got it. They told me it was 10 years old when it was real nice and bushy. after I pruned it back, I noticed the top branches were grafted in. I was kind of disappointed, but I've since falling in love with it. That's one of maybe 13 that I've been growing now for a little bit.
