Cotinus Coggyria grown as a standard
Hello to all out there.
Hope you can give me some guidance. I have a young cotinus coggyria planted in our lawn as a memorial shrub with my partners' mum's ashes underneath!! It has grown enormously this season and is beginning to obscure our view of a decent flower border behind it. My ideal way to overcome the problem would be to prune it gradually into a standard small tree. Do they take kindly to this sort of manipulation? Any advice most welcome.
Good gardening, Annesandra.
