Leave or trim?

Hello I have what I think is an oleander in the border. Not sure if it will flower this year looking at the tops of it. Should I trim or just leave it be? Thankyou x

    I would trim - they look like they are struggling a bit?

    My oleander tops look the same, is it damage from Winter I wonder?

    I would wait for the last of the frosts to be over then trim it.  A feed of slow release fertiliser wouldn't go amiss as well as a good deep drink if it's been dry your way.
