Lovey dubby These Top 25 beauties makes me want to move farther south in the state to where I could have a yard full! I have only one Plumeria tree and I planted in the ground last year but I know if we have any extremely cold winters it will have to be dug up and stored inside the garage.

Cat, Plumeria are easily grown in containers that you can bring indoors during the winter months. Many folks cut the branches and store them in a dry place over-winter and then plant the cut branches come spring. Cuttings have rooted easily for me ... I gave about a dozen small Plumeria trees grown from cuttings to a neighbor before we downsized and moved a few years ago and I just kept the one plant which was in a container for about eight years until I decided to plant it in the ground last summer.

I love the feature 'The Top 25'.
I don't have Plumerias because they can't stay outdoors here in my growing zone, and I don't want to bring plants indoors. But I sure had fun reading about the Top 25 Plumerias. I could almost smell them, and the photos are gorgeous.
Great presentation Dave and Hetty. Thumbs up
