Hi Kathy,

Plants that bloom before June 1st should be pruned after blooming and those that bloom in summer or fall should be pruned in late winter or early spring (Feb to March).

Here's some sites that should be helpful.

There are several reasons that the leaves could be turning yellow. Try this site.
