The extremely thin branches of this Plumeria species will not root, and it is therefore recommended to either grow them from seed, or graft them. They can be successfully grafted onto a Plumeria rubra rootstock, which will allow you to create a 'standard' type tree, a very attractive way to display its intensely fragrant profusion of blooms.

This Plumeria came originally from Cuba where it grows hanging from cliffs and rocks.

The scent of this Plumeria species is almost irresistible. Reminiscent of Gardenia, and extremely strong.
