I love these Denim N Lace - I worried at first because I planted them before a very rainy spell, they didn’t like that - but they bounced back. Question: Do you prune these to the ground in spring?

I love the plant but the rains have caused them to blow apart every which way & I’ ed had to place a wire circle support around them but they don’t look natural. Some of the bottom leaves are either dropping or becoming blackened! Are they getting too much water & are they better where a morning 10 minute sprinkler doesn’t touch them?Angel Bakos, Michigan, United States, 38 weeks ago
wonderful bright blooms, grows well in a large container. I love this plant!Robyn Ryan, Minnesota, United States, 4 years ago
