2. Mindlessly cut branches.
3. Put them aside in the garden's junk drawer.
4. Forget about them for a couple of weeks.
5. Check on the branches & voila! You have new trees!
Seriously, it is almost scary how easily some of these plants grow. I am still on the fence about whether to keep this one or not. For the one thing it is beautiful when in flower with luscious clusters of lilac flowers...but this one has never bloomed for us.
Also, they are fast growers...and you know most fast growing trees don't have the best hardware under the soil, that means that these guys are very prone to being destroyed during a hurricane. Or worse, they are likely to fly madly and smash something else.
