My all time favorite!!

Beautiful bloom, check;
fragrance, check;
prolific bloomer, check;
keeping quality, check;
compact size, check,
Boquet blooms, check
multiple branching, check.

I can rely on this one every spring to late summer for multiple blooms.

I would gladly add a local report.

Done! Thumbs up

....and may I add perfect host for my Dendrobium orchids. The multiple branching provides a.nice canopy to shade the orchids attached to its stems and since it is short, the orchid blooms can peek out on top of its short branches.

Beautiful! So excited to have discovered Divine at a BB store. It has 3 tips and one tip is a double. No blooms, but the anticipation is sweet!

Mary, you will love this one. I purchased mine from Lowe's as a 4-tip rooted plant late 2012. It bloomed for me every year, and with multiple inflos. Each inflo will give me 2 to 3 branches so I have a real mini-tree now. I cut it once for the first time this year to give to a family member.

April 2013:

June 2015, some branches/tips were not in the picture:

Hetty, thank you for the encouragement! It just looks like the perfect little package of a plumeria. Love Gigi's attributes checklist too. I really did not know what a gem I found or I probably would not have been able to drive home for all the excitement! Hurray!

I agree Lin.

I missed Lowe's plumeria sale this year, they carried them again in our local Brandon but when I finally had time to go, all the Divine were gone.

Gigi, I think I need to shop at Lowes in some other part of the state ... I've never, ever seen a Plumeria of any kind for sale at our Lowes! A couple of years ago Home Depot had (what I think was) P. pudica but I've never seen them for sale since.

Lin they have it for a very short time, usually July to Sept. I normally ask the Garden Center Manager when they will have plumeria shipments. If you know what you want the Manager in our Lowe's will even try to get it for you.
