Keeping pieris japonica 'Mountain Fire' pruned

From everything I've read about this, it can grow up to 10 ft tall. I'm re-doing landscaping in the front of my house and not sure where to put it. Can it be kept small?

If you wanted to prune it, then do it in late winter.

And yes, you can keep it short - it will return each year. You will have to adjust your actual pruning height through personal experience based upon how much returns the following summer!
