Is It Ok to Cut Back a Mandevilla

nspratl added on April 15, 2012 | Answered

Kept the plant covered in the winter. I live in southern Alabama. Now it has profuse leaves and new vining only at the top. The bottom half is just the old vines. Can it be cut back to force it to bush out again?

Yes, you can cut it back some. In the future, you may want to pinch your mandevilla. This method of pruning will create a bushier and fuller plant. To pinch your mandevilla vine, simply use your fingers to pinch off 1/4 – 1/2 inch off the end of each stem.
