Pruning Frangipani

Anonymous added on April 29, 2014 | Answered

I have a frangipani in a large pot inside the house in front of bifold doors. It gets lots of sun in this position and this year has developed particularly well, including flowering in mid April. It is slightly out of balance where it has grown in a "V" shape and how has more growth on one side than the other. How do I prune the plant and will this encourage growth on the side with less growth? Should I focus my pruning effort on one side to even it out or prune generally and let nature take its course?

Pruning for these plants is normally achieved prior to new growth (late winter/early spring for us in the US, so likely opposite season in your growing region). They can be pruned as needed to 12 inches from the ground (or soil in pot). This will help balance out the new growth the following growing season.
