[gardeners] Pruning Althea

Does anyone ever cut back their althea (Rose of Sharon)?
Will it branch out at or near the point of the cut?  Or just
put up more shoots from the roots?  I would like to make some
of mine thicken up, and be more bush-like, but I've never 
done any pruning on them, just let them grow however
they felt led.
