Later in the summer in July or August, you should trim back the wild growing branches to bring it back into shape. Trim those branches leaving the stems with five leaves on the branch. Then in late winter or early spring, trim those same branches reducing the branches leaving only two buds where the leaves were attached now. Those two buds on each branch will produce the best flower displays. An easy way to see the pruning methods is on this video from the Royal Horticultural Society.
