Beautiful rare species of plumeria, a real eye-stopper! Perfect accent plant for small yard or patio, this plant blooms year-round, almost non-stop. This plumeria is evergreen, never drops leaves, and looks very tropical and ornamental even in short periods when it doesn't have flowers (in Florida it usually "rests" in December-January). Large clusters of bright white 3" flowers with small yellow centers cover this tree as a beautiful bouquet, hence the common name. Growth habit: medium sized tree with profuse branching, growth is rapid and upright. Leaves are dark green and unique fiddle-shaped, or spoon-shaped. Can be planted in ground in zones 9-11, or cultivated as a potting culture. This plant is very easy to grow, and unlike other plumerias, it doesnt get insect or fungus problems. Somewhat drought tolerant and doesnt require any special care. Tolerates light shade. See Thai Plumeria - varieties Gallery.
