Hi all, I don't know why I'm having trouble with this. The bougainvillea is a just a large MASS right now & I can't decide how to prune it. I love it & want to keep it, but it does need some taming. How do you prune yours, like a large bush basically shortening all the branches to a rounded shape? Or do you leave the long upper branches like a weeping tree effect? I could probably walk under it, if I did this & pruned the lowest branches off. I don't know why I'm so undecided with this. I'm just looking for some ideas, I can't even visualize this pruned up!
