Trimming has got to be done before the sap starts to rise. Crepe's flower only on new wood. Some people let them go and they reach tremendous heights and flowers become sparse. It's a aesthetic call. Just remember that "New Wood" has flowers.
We all are merely gleaners from the masters who were here before us.
