    Plumerias bloom late for us here in the SF Bay Area. I pull them in for the winter until there is no more risk of frost. Looks like I have six others just about ready to open too! My daughter loves "Hawaii Flowers" in her hair.

    Mine won't bloom until September, well the one dwarf one I have. I should look into standards as they are deciduous and I can put them in the dark basement in the winter?

    Your daughter certainly has a flair for the dramatic. The
    flowers are beautiful.

    I've only seen white and pink with/without orange tone.
    This yellow one is beautiful!!!

    I didn't know they make so many flowers on a short tree like this!
    Your daughter is adorable also! :)

    Does this variety have nice fragrance??
