Hi Todd,
I had read these shrubs could be shaped to grow like a tree. I have searched the web without success for some instructions on how to do this. Do you have any information regarding this subject?

It is a manner of removing all but one stem then removing any suckers that develop. This is best accomplished with a young plant. Essentially you are creating a standard. Look up info on creating standards and that should help.
