Bougainvillea #677591

Asked 2020-11-21 15:45:26

Brought my 18” Bougainvillea inside for the winter. It’s quite leggy. Can I prune it back now (to 10”) or should I wait until spring when I take it outside again? Thank you.

As you will be treating as a houseplant, you can prune it back now.  Were it planted outside, the proper time would be early spring before bud break.
