Plumeria go into a resting period in the winter. Usually all their leaves fall off and they look like sticks. This is the best time to plant them in the ground. When they wake up from their dormancy they will establish their root systems and you'll see new leaves developing. Plant yours at the same soil depth as they were growing in the containers. They need well draining soils so work some compost or other organic matter into the garden bed before planting your plumerias. Hope this answers all your questions. Enjoy your garden!
