Q.chinese lantern

Zone Zone 11 | Anonymous added on February 10, 2019 | Answered

I transplanted my Chinese lantern and it looks healthy with lots of leaves and blooms. However, the branches are drooping and in some cases breaking. Should I trim it back?

I live in the Central Valley of CA, zone 11.

This is normal. Many species will have a tendency to get too heavy for themselves. You can prune them back a little to help alleviate this. Here is an article for more information on the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/chinese-lantern/caring-for-chinese-lanterns.htm
