Leggy Yesterday, Today, Tomorrows- Please troubleshoot

Theyre super stringy and produce minimal flowers. I have some in full sun, others in part sun and some in shade. Theyre all doing terrible and very "leggy". Does anyone have any advice? I live in zone 9

Chelsea - Welcome to the forum

Prune your plant with a sharp pair of by-pass snips. Make your cuts just above but not into a leaf node. Consider the direction that the leaf node faces - into the plant or out. That is where your new growth will take place.

Good luck

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown

Cut this right back like you would treat a hydrangea then feed , feed and feed it will reward you next season
