Tropical trees, native to warm tropical areas of the Pacific Islands, Caribbean, South America and Mexico. Plumerias are famous for their gorgeous flowers and come in a wide range of colors, like white, yellow and pink, as we can see in the picture. All of them produce a wonderful perfume scent.
They belong to the family Apocynaceae. This sort of plant can grow up to 20 feet tall and it can reach 30 to 40 feet at maturity. Moreover, Plumerias are easy to grow up, regardless of the region where you live.
Seeds collected from a collection of selected hawaiian hybrids. They were open-pollinated and we mixed the seeds.
2 Cuttings of 15-20 cm. "Common White"... with yellow center... is one of the easiest to grow and bloom. It is evergreen in warm climates and blooms almost continuously throughout the warmest months - In the Canary Islands it can flower from April to December: 8 or 9 months per year instead of the typical 4-6 months of most cultivars.
This is a wild form of Plumeria rubra, not a hybrid or a selection as ALL the ones you will find in the trade. Wild types are tough guys from the coastal scrubs of Central America, able to withstand truly harsh conditions. It is very vigorous with large leaves. Flowers are white with a yellow center.
