They sound magnificent! I don't think they are meant to be cut back.

I agree, you don't need to cut them back. I've seen them grown in containers, and they trail over the side.

Don't cut it back; it is intended to grow very large and tall:

"Tidal Wave forms a dense, mounded hedge, 16 to 22 in./40 to 55 cm tall. Grown in a restricted space with support, they will grow an extra 2 to 3 ft./60 to 90 cm upward, like a vine. The stiff stems help to maintain the habit through the season."

"Plants first grow outward, then up, and finally in both directions to make an outstanding, shrublike shape that continues to hold its form all season."

Otherwise, welcome to our little Canadian Gardening family, CurlySue! We love to help each other out with info, tips and interesting stories.
