Plumeria, also called Frangipani, Pagoda Tree or Temple Tree, is the classic Hawaiian leis tree. Its flowers are the ones used to form the colorful, tropical flower necklaces (lei) every tourist to our 50th state wears during at least one beach party.
Native to Tropical America, from southern Mexico, northern South America and the West Indies, Plumeria is rated a small tree, to about 15-18 feet and is seen in a variety of solid colors. Makes an exceptional container plant.
The flowers are about 2 inches long, arranged in 5 petals, are waxy and fragrant. It blooms in spring and through all the summer months
The tree itself is multi-branched and holds thick foliage. The young tree has green wood on the trunk and branches which become more gray as it matures
