What is a plumeria? A plumeria is a flowering tree, sometimes called the frangipani. It primarily grows in the tropics, and is especially prolific in Hawaii. It's flowers are used in Hawaii to create leis to give to visitors. Plumeria flowers come in a dazzling variety of shapes and colors; the most common being white (as in the banner above) and red (to the right)
In other parts of the world, it is called the Temple Tree since it's flowers are routinely gathered and used to decorate the many temples of southeast Asia.If you're truly fascinated by Plumeria trees, visit The Plumeria Place which seems to have tons of information about them, and tips on growing them and ordering seeds.
