Plumeria commemorates Charles Plumier, a seventeenth-century French botanist who described several tropical species. The genus contains 8 species of mainly deciduous shrubs and trees, originally from Central America, known for their strongly fragrant flowers. The tree can reach a height of 9m, though they are generally much smaller. Their fleshy branches contain a poisonous, milk sap. In the tropics, the terminally held flowers (generally white) appear before the leaves and continue to flower for most of the year. In subtropical climates the flowers appear in spring, after the leaves, and continue growing until the next winter. The fruit consist of 2 leathery follicles, althought the trees rarely fruit in cultivation. Most plumerias in gardens are hybrids. Plumerias are very salt tolerant.

Trimming Plumerias? I humbly disagree with pruning
any type of plant/bush/tree with an architecture,
vascular system, bark characteristics such as this
bush.

You will get a mutilated, such as in a war, bush.
Sure, you may propagate the cuttings but you will
have a scared ugly bush in your garden/pot.

Think about it, before you trim anything, unless
you have tolerance for ugliness in the garden/pot or if indifferent to beauty.

You should pot your Plumeria in a large pot and bring it in for the Winter. If you don't want it going dormant bring it in when nights get 65 degrees. Then you can grow in a sunny window and grow spot light . You can also allow your Plumeira to go dormant removing all soil keep dry in a warm dry area and plant in garden or new pot when ground is warm after chance of last frost.You can trim your Plumeira plant for size and shape you want and also use cuttings to propagate new plants.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
