Discover Plumerias & Care Tips for Blooming Beauties.

Plumeria, also known as frangipani, are tropical trees. There are numerous cultivars with new hybrids being discovered all the time. Each cultivar has its own unique color variations, fragrances, and growing habits. With so many varieties, you are sure to discover many favorites and find you can’t have just one!

These trees are fairly low maintenance, but there are certain guidelines to ensure a healthy plant. We have provided the following care instructions, and if followed, you too will be enjoying these beautiful blooms in your own backyard.

The optimum temperatures for a healthy, productive plant range between 60-85 degrees. Depending upon your climate, Plumeria can bloom between March to November. There is a dormancy period during Winter months for all plumeria. Do not be alarmed if your plant begins to lose its leaves sometime in the Fall of each year. This is normal, and your plant is preparing to sleep for Winter. We recommend that you protect your plumeria from temperatures that drop below 40-45 degrees. If possible, bring it inside, store it for the Winter and keep it warm. Watering is generally not recommended during dormancy.

When Spring arrives, and when nighttime low temperatures are averaging above 60 degrees, it is then safe to take your plant out of winter storage. Give it some fresh soil, thorough watering, and fertilizer. Place in a sunny location that receives approximately 6 hours of full sun per day. Plumeria plants must have an ample amount of sun to produce their fragrant, beautiful blooms.

It is the fragrant, beautiful blooms that inspired our “Passion for Plumeria”, and we hope that it will inspire you too!
