I would prune it back to six feet about every other year (and fill a pickup truck with the brush) It was full of bird nests and looked like it was snowing when the wind blew through it when in full bloom. Then it just did not come back one spring... I was heartbroken! I have a friend who had the same thing happen the same year. An extra cold winter maybe?! I decided to try something different so replaced it with a porcelain berry vine. Prett,y but not nearly as spectacular. Unfortunately both were/are irresistable to Japanese Beetle. I spray with sevin and it literally rains beetles for hours!!
