I'm new to plumeria, and am TRYING to pick just ONE (good luck right). Of course I want a long flowering season, lots of flowers, great scent, and grows well in a pot. The red/orange/ pink flowers are my faves. I live in WI so summer is short, but have a large SW patio door to extend the season.
Ive been doing some research and Kauka Wilder (coincidence that some one just posted this same one) looks like it might be a good one. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Mike,

There are many plumerias that fit what you're asking for in a plumeria.

Everybody has his/hers own favorites.

One of my many favorites here in Chicago is Kimo >>>

Kauka Wilder is a reliable bloomer, so is Kimo but I find Kimo hard to root so I would get a plant. One of the most reliable reds is Rose Red.
Bob can inform you better about trying to grow Plumeria in a northern climate!
