Ours did this last year so we cut it way back and it shot out nice and full. Wish I would have done it the year before😊

I chopped the life out of one I had a few years ago and thought I'd killed it but it looked fab when it grew back 😁

comment

@gjones @jaynehynesburton I've had this a long time and we do cut it back every year otherwise it would be way to big, but it doesn't usually look like this so I think it may be very angry at me 😂 if it doesn't straighten up and fly right it's gonna get it's marching papers!😂😂💘😍

@ShelleySnyder when do you cut it back? Before or after winter? If you leave it till now it’s protected and then cut it back and it’ll produce new growth.

@pixierose I've cut it in fall and spring and it didn't seem to matter to it, this year it was cut last fall💘😍

How old is It? Maybe it's just had enough and wants to retire 😂 they are dead easy to take cuttings from I'd do that and start again with a young one 😊

Mine starts off like this sure it will burst into leaf before you know it 💘💛💘💛

@ShelleySnyder it may have had enough as @Keely mentions. Taking cuttings will give you many more new plants and maybe the original has to be retired to the compost heap?! 🙂

comment
ShelleySnyder

@angiecrazycatlady @Keely @pixierose it's pretty old Angie maybe 20years old, it's a bit of a waiting game right now, it either snaps out of it or gets it head chopped off!😂😂💘😍
