Scott Pratt plant
  • Posted by drdawg (Vero Beach, FL - Zone 10a) on Sep 16, 2015 5:15 AM concerning plant:
    Please correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is that the Scott Pratt is the ultimate historical plumeria variety in America. It was the first plumeria registered by the PSA. Enough history. This plant is a vigorous grower, a great bloomer, and (for a red) is easy to root.

    After 6 yr., my opinion of Scott Pratt's rooting tendencies has changed. I would now label this variety "difficult to root". I had seed-pods on one of my two plants this summer (2021), but the pods aborted within a month. My understanding is that this variety rarely will grow seed-pods and that there has never been an instance of those pods maturing with viable seeds.
