Plumeria plants are actually small trees that are native to warm, tropical regions. The exotic flowers of these beautiful plants have a signature sweet fragrance and are used in making traditional Hawaiian leis.
Plumeria’s long-lasting blooms show from April to November with gorgeous hues of white, yellow, pink, and red. They contrast perfectly with Plumeria’s lush, dark green leaves which transform your landscape into a tropical paradise.
This plant goes dormant during the winter, meaning, it will lose its flowers during frost. However, come spring, the Plumeria flower will produce over 100 blossoms gradually over the year. Known for its invigorating fragrance, the Plumeria has a one-of-a-kind fruity, sweet scent that will permeate your entire garden or home.
The Plumeria is incredibly hardy, drought and heat-resistant. Even if you don’t live in a tropical location, it will do well inside as an indoor plant. You can even grow this plant as a border for privacy along your driveway or in a container on your patio.
If you’re looking for an easy-to-grow plant with show-stopping flowers that last from spring to late fall, the Plumeria is the perfect plant for you! Don’t wait any longer, order yours today!

What do Plumeria blooms smell like?

How do I plant Plumeria in a container for it to thrive?
Plant your Plumeria in a container twice the size of its shipping container. Be sure the container has holes to drain water.
What color will my Plumeria be?
Your Plumeria blooms could be any color including white, yellow, pink, and red. They are absolutely exquisite and you definitely will get compliments!
Plumeria can grow well outdoors in growing zones 10-11, but don't count out your growing zone! This beauty thrives in growing zones 4-9 as a patio container plant. Choose a location with well-drained soil and full to partial sunlight (between 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Easy Directions: Dig a hole that is twice the size of your Plumeria root ball. Remove your plant from its original container from PlantingTree's nursery, then position it into the hole, and backfill the soil. Lightly tamper the top soil down and water to establish.
If you’re planting in a container, choose a pot that is about twice the width of your plant’s shipped container, use organic soil mix, and place your plant in a pot with drainage holes.
While the Plumeria is a drought-tolerant plant it still requires deep watering once a week. We recommend watering these plants right at the base.
If you’re not sure when to water or have a container of Plumeria growing, check the top two inches of soil for dryness. If the soil is dry, then it’s time to water. Water your container planted Plumerias until you see it flowing from the drainage holes.
Apply a slow-release fertilizer once a year in early spring, before new growth emerges. Follow by watering the soil to allow the fertilizer to penetrate into the roots. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the fertilizer.
Minimal pruning is needed for Plumerias. Prune back any broken branches in spring before new growth begins.
Plumeria can be planted as a privacy fence, in a container on a patio, or inside your home.
