Up to Seven Months of Highly Fragrant Tropical Blooms
Why Plumeria Plants?
Plumerias steal the show from April all the way into November with their clusters of large five-petal blossoms. The blooms’ colorful 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.

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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I've never had a tropical plant so I've been pretty much winging it with my Plumeria tree. It's been a good experience so far as the tree arrived in the mail in great shape. I bought my Plumeria tree in July 2021 and transplanted it to a giant pot so I could move it indoors during the cold winter months here in Virginia. When I transferred the tree to a large pot I became upst because all, but two leaves fell off. Thankfully, beautiful new leaves started growing straight up the center and then out to the sides. This tree is gorgeous! It's now 4 months later and I have beautiful blooms on my tree! My Plumeria tree loved the Virginia heat and humidity this summer. I just brought it indoors and keep it next to our french door windows for sunlight and it's still blooming flowers. Thank you fast-growing trees for producing such quality plants and trees. I have purchased 7 flowering trees from your company and they're all so beautiful! I receive so many compliments and my neighbors are envious. =)
Plumeria and Ice Cream Banana Plant
Both plants appear to be doing well. Especially the banana plant. I was a little worried about the banana plant because it had a broken leaf. Now it's striving. The Plumeria I planted this week. I don't want a huge tree so I'm hoping to stunt it's growth by planting it in a large pot. Please let me know if this the kind of plant that can be planted. Also how long will it take to bloom flowers. Thank you so much for the follow up.
