Yes over wimters well....last year it was left outside.  Actually it may be called Bonfire but it is an eye catcher all summer long.  Well fed and well watered and it will add another 30 cms in height.  I have one next to heliotrope chatsworth ...purple blue...and they complement each other well I think

Now is perfect time Arthur.   choisyas respond well to pruning hard. If you can, cut back to green shoots but into old wood still ok

Die back on my cornus.
