Pruning, care and propagation of Frangipani

The size and growth of Frangipni can be kept under control by regularly prunuing the plant. The frangipani trees respond very well to pruning. The branches of frangipani should be cut to about one-third of their size so that it can be maintained easily. The pruned branches usually result in multiple branches near the pruned ends. If you do not want any more branches, just prune the branches right back to the main trunk so that there would not be any more new branches.

As far as winter care is of Frangipani is concerned, it is recommended to protect it from cold by moving it in. Glasshouses are ideal but something like a garage should also work fine. If your plant has grown big, you should better prune it before you move it in so that it is easily handled. Since frangipani is deciduous, after the leaves of the plant fall down, the plant should not be watered. It should be kept dry.

If you want new plants from your existing Frangipani, you can easily do so just by allowing the cut branches when you prune the plant to develop roots. The cut branches should be dried out for one week in shade and then they should be planted directly into ground or pots of sand. It is advisable to water the plant only once in fortnight until roots have developed. for pictures go to-pictures of afrangipani tree,good luck.
