I have several plumeria plants that I planted in the ground this spring. I will soon need to dig them up and store them in the garage for the winter, as I left some last year that died with the frost, even covered. Can I trim the roots before storing them in smaller post for the winter.
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is dedicated to the care, use and propagation of plants native not only to North America but to the areas in which they are grown. Plumeria rubra is native to Central and South America and therefore falls out of our range of expertise. However, if you Google on "plumeria care" you will get dozens of websites that can help you much more than we could.
