I have a sweet almond shrub (Aloysia virgata) growing close to my house. I like the location, but it gets in the way of the sidewalk going to the front door. I want to trim it in an attractive manner that will give me the most blooms. From what I've read, this should be pretty easy and I'm familiar with trimming trees and shrubs.
Is there any things I should keep in mind that might not be obvious?
P.S. Looking at this pic, I'm thinking I could go nuts and espalier it against the wall... Hhmmm...
