This is my neighbor Peggy's plumeria. She is wondering if she should prune it in any way before she takes it in for the winter. It looks SO nice.

Anna, it looks so nice. I'd leave it as is and take it in to go dormant. It's too pretty to prune.

I would leave it alone too. If she has space to hide it as is, I would leave it alone to enjoy its winter beauty rest Smiling

If she does not, I do, as I overwinter some of her plants for her in my greenhouse. I will pass this on to her.
