Today's Plumeria of the Day is Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Celadine') .

This plumeria is a hands down favorite for making leis; the blooms are very fragrant and last a long time when picked.
Please join in the discussion, if you own this plumeria! We would love to know more!



Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Lovely. Am thinking of trying to grow from seed. Plumeria is one of the few things I have not grown from seed. Smiling Or I may just break down and buy one established from Drdawg.

It may be years for you to see blooms if you grow one from seed. I don't want to discourage, just give you fair warning.

Thanks Big Grin Yes - I understand completely. I have ~ a dozen esoteric species (Bauhinia, Dietes, Dierama, Clemantine, Pineapple, Heliconia, Siberian Iris & Brugsmania) that I started from seed in 2013 & 2014 that will not bloom for years - if at all. I love challenges and have developed a fondness for Plumeria having purchased my second-first (Little Darling is her name - NOID) as a rooted cutting ~ 1 year ago. It was my second attempt as my first-first died. :-(

Made up my mind overnight. Will likely purchase from https://www.bradsbudsandblooms.com/product-category/plumeria... as he has a sale going on now. Must show restraint! Some of those are very expensive.

In the mean time, I will likely buy a Celadine as well. From what I have read here, it seems a good one for a Newbie.

[quote="GigiPlumeria"]Ken @drdawg has this Celadine



If there is such a thing as "specializing" in a variety, Celadine would be mine. I still have my original Celadine, rooted 25+ years ago, and its base is huge. Every cutting and every rooted Celadine I have has that same original plant as its "mother". I have just taken numerous long, plump cuttings from several of those plants and I am near the cut-off date when I will take cuttings. I plan on rooting all the cuttings but right now, they are all sitting in my greenhouse, callusing. I had a sub-variety of Celadine bloom last summer (is "sub-variety" the right term?) and its flowers were huge and almost completely yellow. It hasn't bloomed yet and I hope to see the same variation of flowers if/when it does. You can see the huge difference in flowers in the photograph.

I am planning on over-wintering some of my varieties in my sunroom and see how they respond to light/water/very light fertilizing through the fall and winter months. I am trying to mimic what you lucky Florida residents do, though you keep yours outside year 'round. Most of mine will go into the "temporary" greenhouse in my garage and will stay dormant until spring.

I took some pictures last year, Mark. and posted them then. If I can "dig" it/them up from my 1000's of pictures, I will re-post. Keep in mind that I keep all my plants at or under 6' tall, since I have to move each and every one inside for the fall/winter months. I also keep all mine potted for the same reason, and I am sure, limiting their root mass has slowed their rate of growth.

@DavidLMO I recommend you also check out Florida Colors when looking for Plumeria plants. Their prices are generally better than Brad's

Thanks Hetty. I was just gonna order seeds from Brad. At this late of a date and my Zone, not sure if I want to get another plant at this time. Last year on August 10, I bought a Clivia, Plumeria and Adenium. The Plumeria immediately went in to transit shock, dropped its leaves and went into dormancy in short order.

David, before shipping cuttings, all the large leaves should have been removed, leaving only the small, terminal leaves. Regardless of shipping, those large leaves would be lost while the plant is rooting, which is perfectly normal. The plant isn't in any sort of "shock" or even dormant. It is simply channeling its energy into growing roots. I hope this information helps you understand the mechanism of rooting and lets you know that you did not do anything wrong. I assume your plant rooted in the spring?

After Mother's day when I placed it outside, it took off. Well, given my Zone, it did the best that it could. :-)

And yes, it did appear that all the larger leaves had been removed with just some small leaves when I received it.
