Plumeria - the Underrated Species

By Dutchlady1

It is almost irresistible to wallow in the beauty of the many cultivars of Plumeria rubra. The colors, sizes, and shapes of the blooms vary enormously and make it very tempting to try to collect them "all" (ask me how I know!) There are a number of Plumeria species that are underrated, however, and yet they have so much to offer.

I have some friends that just returned from Hawaii and they brought me a Plumeria cutting. I planted it today. I have one very large Plumeria about 10 ft tall that grows in a large pot. The others I lost the winter it went down to 18 degrees. Crying I do enjoy them.
