Most people first experience the wonder of plumeria, or frangipani, when they visit the islands of Hawaii. Whether it be the fragrant beauty of a Hawaiian Lei, or a wondrous Plumeria tree in bloom at their favorite hotel, most people come away with a special feeling towards this special flower.
Although most people are only aware of a few different colors or varieties, now with all the hybridization that has been done there are literally hundreds and hundreds of color combinations to choose from.
As avid collectors, we have searched the world over to find new and exciting shapes and colors. We have imported many varieties from Hawaii and Southeast Asia as well as scouring the states of Florida and California to add to our collection. In order to explore additional possibilities we have grown many new varieties from seed. Although this process can take a little more time, we have been rewarded with some very unique new specimens. We will devote a future article to this endeavor.
All of the varieties pictured in this article are available for sale in our Plumeria Shop.
