Plumeria obtusa “Frangipani or The Temple Tree” is a large, deciduous shrub or small, spreading tree with robust, sparsely branched, very thick stems. Spirally arranged, lance-shaped, slightly wrinkled, rich green leaves, to 30cm long, are usually finely hairy beneath. Salverform, yellow-eyed white flowers, 6cm across, are produced in terminal panicles from summer to autumn.
Keep soil evenly moist spring through fall. Water sparingly in winter, when plant is resting. Yellowing leaves are a sign of overwatering.
Plumeria care requires bright light to full sun. Plants that don’t bloom aren’t getting enough sun. Growing plumeria require at least 5 hours of direct sun each day.
During summer season or when the temperature is above 45°C place the plant in shaded area. During winter season or the when the temperature is below 45°C the plants can be directly placed in direct/indirect sunlight.
During the peak growing season, give your plumeria a phosphate fertilizer every two or three weeks to promote new growth.
