Cutting Back Penta Plants


jshelvey added on August 1, 2017 | Answered

I live in N Ft Myers, Fl. I have several pentas as a border in a garden. They are getting too big. Can I cut them back when/if they stop blooming in the fall?

Generally, these are cut back in spring but in your area, it should be fine to cut back in fall. Don't take off more than a third from the plant, though each season.
