Plumeria pudica – White Frangipani – Bridal Bouquet (large 4″ pot)

This tropical, popular in Florida Frangipani does not have fragrant flowers, but it is a plant that is covered in white blooms nearly year round. This trimmable tree is drought tolerant. I recommend this as a must have for gardens in a tropical location.

Description

Plumeria pudica is perhaps the best Plumeria available today. They are very easy to grow and they bloom most of the year. We noted only a light fragrance for this species.
This Plumeria requires a lot of direct sun and drier conditions most of the year. This is the only Plumeria that is normally evergreen in warmer locations. Younger plants can lose their leaves in winter, but mature plants in the ground can keep their leaves if the winter was not too cold. They can use a little water during the warmer months, something like once every 10-15 days if it doesn’t rain.
During the winter, freezing temperatures should be avoided, the plant can be kept drier with watering every 4 weeks or so. Plumerias don’t like wet soil, therefore good drainage is important. Fertilization should be done primarily during the warmer months when the plant is actively growing. Fertilize with the approximate 1-1-1 ratio are preferable.
Many varieties of Plumerias are affected by “rust’ especially during the late summer/fall. We haven’t seen this problem affecting the Plumeria pudica.
