Plumeria is also commonly known as white frangipani and can reach up to the height of 30′ to 40′. Plumeria can deepen the grace of landscapes quite noticeably.
It is well-known for its intensely fragrant, lovely, spiral-shaped blooms which appear at branch tips June through
November. The tree itself is rather unusual in appearance; the 20-inch-long, coarse, deciduous leaves clustered
only at the tips of the rough, blunt, sausage-like, thick, grey-green branches. Branches are upright and rather
crowded on the trunk forming a vase or umbrella shape with age.
They are rather soft and brittle and can break but are usually sturdy unless they are mechanically hit or disturbed.
A milky sap is exuded from the branches when they are bruised or punctured.
