I would cut some of the oldest bits right back to base, it opens up the shrub and avoids the 'flowering blob' effect

Shrubs from seed

yes, lots of them, and trees. I can't help myself, it's an obsession,.

Clerodendrum trichotomum is easy, Chimonanthus praecox (maybe not quite so easy, I only got one) lots of different Cotoneasters and Loniceras. Eleagnus umbellata and angustifolia, Catalpa. The list is long and will be longer.
