Plumeria, or Frangipani are indigenous to tropical and subtropical Americas. Plumeria are a mainly
deciduous shrubs and trees which produces flowers that range from yellow to pink, but many hybrids display most colors of the rainbow. Plumeria
is akin to the Oleander, both have poisonous, milky sap. Each separate species of Plumeria have differently shaped leaves.
The Plumeria flowers are more fragrant at night in order to attract pollinators. Though the plumeria
flower produces no nectar, the pollinators are none the lest "fooled" into moving from one flower to the next. Plumeria species can propagated by
taking a cutting of leafless stem tips in spring, letting them "scab over" and then inserted into soil. They can be propagated by tissue culture or from germinated seeds.
