Why Plumeria Plants?
Plumerias steal the show from April all the way into November with their clusters of large five-petal blossoms. The blooms’ vibrant yellow, pink, white and red hues contrast perfectly with the Plumeria’s lush, dark green leaves, transforming your landscape into a tropical paradise.
Plumerias, also known as Frangipani or the ‘lei flower’, are native to tropical areas like Hawaii…but you don’t have to live in a tropical climate to grow them. If you don’t live in southern Florida, simply place yours in a container and bring it indoors in the colder months. Plumerias are tough, with a high level of drought and heat resistance and high salt tolerance. This makes them perfect for any location, including apartment terraces or suburban patios.
You'll receive an assorted color variety when you order your Plumeria. And though your Plumeria’s eventual color will vary, you get vibrancy and versatility, whether you grow it in border plantings along your driveway or in a container on your patio. Plus, its gardenia-like fragrance is ideal for high-traffic areas.

Customer Reviews & Photos
We were very impressed with the plumeria we received, which came in a large box in perfect condition and so far is thriving in our front yard.
The two Plumeria plants arrived safely with no damage. I didn't realize that they would be so tall--I expected smaller bushier plants. Since they were so tall, they should have been supported by a stake because they are leaning off kilter. I ordered some small plumeria plants from Amazon and each one were supported with a stake. That is a suggestion I think you should incorporate when you ship your Plumeria plants. Since it is already low 40's at night, the two plants are inside by my glass sliding door and are getting sun almost all day. I'll let you know in Spring if they make it through the winter. I have had Plumeria in So Cal that I raised from cuttings and they grew into small trees about 5 ft. and always bloomed profusely. When I moved to Oregon in 2004, I left my Plumeria behind and have really missed them. One of the rooted cuttings that I purchased from Amazon (a beautiful red one) already had a flower head on it and it has been produced one or two flowers since July. I look forward to the ones I purchased from you to hopefully start blooming this Spring.
The little tree was a lot taller than I expected from the pictures, which is fine since they grow very slowly and mine has a head start. As warned, almost all the leaves did drop off, but at the same time new leaves were forming. The trunk is plump and healthy, so I am optimistic that my Plumeria will do well. I have grown these outdoors in warm climates. This is my first attempt at using a container indoors (sunny window) in zone 5. So far so good!
Amazing customer service and help! Plant has yet to bloom flowers so little disappointed in that but seems to be healthy overall.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight (4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). Dig a hole for your Plumeria that’s large enough to accommodate the root ball. Remove your plant from its original container, position it into the hole, and backfill the soil.
If you’re planting in a container, choose a pot that’s about twice the width of your plant’s shipped container, use organic soil mix and place your plant. Also, ensure your pot has drainage holes.
2. Watering: The Plumeria is a drought-tolerant plant but requires a deep watering about once a week. We recommend watering these plants in the morning, at the base.
If you’re not sure when to water or have a container planted Plumeria, simply check the top 2 inches of soil for dryness. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water. Water your container planted Plumerias until you see it flowing from the drainage holes.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer once a year in early spring, before new growth emerges. Follow up by watering the surrounding soil to allow the fertilizer to penetrate into the roots. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the fertilizer.
4. Pruning: Minimal pruning is needed for these plants. Any broken branches can be pruned back in spring before new growth begins.
