The Q&A Archives: Poor blooms on Plumbago

Question: I live in San Antonio,tx.
I have blue plumbago under some trees in back yard. Plants look healthy but I don't get as many or as large blooms and do several of my neighbors. Can you suggest possible reasons?

Answer: Plumbago responds well to pruning. It will flower profusely after being cut back or after a growth flush, since it bears flowers on new wood. If yours is not blooming well, try cutting it back to force new (and hopefully flowering) growth. Hope this helps!
