I was given a large cutting (~3 - 4 ft) in the fall. This spring It started putting out leaves when I placed it in a pot!. Hurray!
Are there any advantages to keeping it in a pot or putting in the ground?

Anna, in your area you will need to protect it in the winter, and therefore many people will choose to keep it in a pot; however, being essentially a tree it would be happier in the ground, if you don't mind digging it up each fall. They go dormant at that time and so don't really need anything but a frost free space in the winter months.

Yes, it wintered in my garage without being in a pot.. I was really surprised that it is growing. Thanks.
Does it root well from cuttings? I am thinking a smaller portion might be nice as a thriller in a container.

Most Plumeria root easily from cuttings. Let the cutting callous for about a week before planting it.
