Anyone know what this is? This is a friends plumie. It never leafed during the summer. It just continued with this weird growth.

I have never seen anything even close to this. It looks like it got blasted with radiation and is now producing dozens of tips. Shrug! Perhaps Hetty will have seen this. Weird things happen in S. FL. Whistling

They look like galls of some kind. Here's a site to scroll through: http://waynesword.palomar.edu/pljuly99.htm

Could be, Kadie. I have simply never heard of such a thing related to the plumeria. We have mistletoe (on oak) and oak gall here and in fact I posted a picture of the oak gall several months ago.
