Pruning Carolina jasmine

Zone Atlanta | Anonymous added on March 4, 2019 | Answered

It’s early March in the Southeast.. Atlanta, Ga. My Carolina Jasmine is in full bloom, but is growing into my soffit and attic. Can I top off the plant now while it’s blooming, or will it damage the plant? If I can’t prune now, then when is the best time?

If you are just trying to cut a small portion of the plant for height control, then it would be ok to do so now. If you are doing a major pruning job, then I would wait until winter rolls around again.
