After frangipanis experience ideal conditions and
accelerated growth, their health may deteriorate.
The lower branches and branches in the middle are
likely to deteriorate first. Initially, the weak
branches will become soft and thin, then black and
squishy and if they don't bend and fall off, they
will become dead hardwood.
A full prune will increase the amount of nutrients
going to each branch. The branches will immediately
start growing thicker, stronger and healthier than
before. It may take a year or two for the frangipani
tree to regain its bushiness and full shape but it
will be a stronger, healthier better looking
frangipani in the following decade.
The best time for a full prune in Australia is
before summer, preferably July, August or September.
Frangipanis grow more strongly through summer so
they are better able to cope with the stress and
recover sooner during the summer months.
Another reason for a full prune is to better enjoy
the frangipani flowers. Some frangipani owners
complain that all the flowers grow too high. They
cannot get a close look at the flowers and cannot
get a close smell of the frangipani flower
fragrance. After a full prune, the frangipani will
produce lower branches and flowers closer to the
If you need to cut off a single branch or small
number of branches, you can easily do it with a
chainsaw or handsaw. If possible, make the cut
vertical so the branch does not hold water. Make the
cut close to the fork so new shoots do not grow from
the end of the cut off branch, and as mentioned
above, prune during late winter or early spring.
