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?

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!
