I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

You can prune desert rose whenever you like. They tend to flower their best in the hot dry time of the year so pruning in spring can allow for growth and setting of bloom buds so as not to reduce their summer bloom potential.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening year in 2007. Please stop in again soon!
