|First I am going to sing the praises of this amazing Plumeria species, which is originally from Santa Margarita Island near Venezuela. |
The leaves are very interesting and a shiny, deep green color. Then it has the most interesting shrub-like growth habit and is beautiful as a hedge. They tend to grow to about 10 ft tall eventually but they can easily be trimmed back each year in the early spring, which gives it enough time to favor you with a flush of blooms by early summer, blooming as late as December. Unless there is a very cold winter, the plant keeps its leaves year-round in our zone.
I had grown some of these specifically for someone who would buy a few from me every other week or so, but this person has backed out of our deal and I now have a bit of a glut of rooted Plumeria pudica.
So: special of the week, three rooted cuttings for $ 12 plus actual shipping. Please contact me if you're interested.

|This was my first plumeria, and I believe it's the best 'starter' to learn to love plumeria!|
I LOVE how it flowers profusely, and that it requires very little care. I have it on a container and so far it's been very happy.

|Those are interesting leaves, quite different. I like that it is a shrub too. I'll have to look around for it here. |

|For all of you looking at these if they dont have blooms I bet they will soon if not you can count on them next year. I planted 3 pieces on a 1 gal pot like Hetty is selling and it creates a Great little bush and in a few years you can have a big large bush(s) they are easy to root and when you cut them they bush very nice, its a great deal. the display of flowers are great large white flowers. i have a few other plumeria of strong color behind mine (all in pots now) The white creates a great stage to make the other colors POP so much. and when mine where not in bloom i LOVE the leaves so so so much different then any other plumeria!!!|
i have tons of pics of smaller sizes like she is selling and how they grow that im happy to post for anyone that is thinking of buying them. they are the EASIEST of the plumeria to grow!!!
to give you an idea of the value you are getting i have sold a 3 stem potted plant on ebay for 25.00 plus shipping. and mine came from Hetty so they are the same potted plant.
Hetty great deal !!!!

|Hetty, sign me up for the three rooted cuttings. I don't have that variety. Just let me know what the shipping will be and I will pay for it via PayPal. I just need the total cost and your email address to use PayPal. Ken (drdawg)|

|They are wonderful bloomers, seem to not be susceptible to the rusty fungus the others get, and start easily from cuttings too. |
I have one almost 5ft. tall that was started from a cutting I got last spring.
My only complaint with it is it has no scent! The lovely fragrance is plumeria's greatest asset, jmho.
