Plumeria takes 2-3 years to mature enough to produce flowers. They will branch out and when you see them forming branches, flowering won't be far behind. Mine bloom for about 6-8 weeks from spring through early summer. Plumeria will be damaged if temperatures drop below 40F. If you keep yours in a pot, you can move it into a protected place overnight if the temperatures dip below 40F. Or, if your garden always remains above 40F, you can plant them directly in the ground. Provide full sunshine for your plants and well draining soils. Best wishes with your plumeria!
