In the fall, I pruned the heck out of them, but it paid off. I've given away lots of bouquets, literal handfuls of bright pink blooms. That's my favorite thing about gardens: growing flowers to cut and bring inside or give away. Mom did that when her gardens were in their prime. I loved helping her gather dahlias and zinnias and roses and daisies...the list goes on.
