I'm not familiar with palmeria tree. Perhaps you mean plumeria? If so, plumeria has an open appearance, with leathery, pointed leaves clustered near the tips of thick branches. You can cut 1/3 of the branch back and new shoots will appear, each with a cluster of leaves on the end. You should wait until after the flowers fade before pruning.
