Tropical trees, native to warm tropical areas of the Caribbean, Central America and Northern South America. 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.
Plumerias are easy to grow up, regardless of the region where you live. They are small trees, 2-10 m tall, but they will grow and bloom in relatively small pots for decades. They are frost-tender but they shed their leaves and rest until late April, so they are easy to winter indoors.
We grow strong mother plants in our fields to produce the best thick, apical cuttings. Then we root them for almost one year before selling the plant. Our plumerias can bloom in less than one year, if cared properly.
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.
