The Q&A Archives: Plumeria

Question: I live in Virginia Beach, Va. During a trip to Hawaii I fell in love with the Plumeria tree. Can I grow it here, and, if yes, where can i find it?
Thank you
Laura Sargent

Answer: You can grow plumeria indoors (same cultural requirements as orchids or African violets) and then take it outdoors during the spring and summer months. It may or may not bloom for you, though. But if you want to try, you can purchase cuttings online and through many Hawaiian gift shops (check online for a list by searching gift shops in Hawaii or Plumeria).
