Not sure you need worry about pruning, whatever the variety - the pot it's in will restrict its growth severely anyway.

I'd just chop back any bits that annoy you - getting over the window or too far through the railings. They're tough as boiled leather in my experience. Don't forget to water it if we have a dry spell though as it won't have much of a root system in the pot.

Not sure how deep that pot is in the picture, hard to tell - It would do better in a pot that's 2 feet deep and 12/18 inches wide all the way down, but the pot you have does look rather attractive, lol
