Plumeria rubra Divine is also called the temple tree or frangipani. This exodus originating in Central and South America is also common in Indonesia. It's a hard worker when it comes to flowers. In free nature, the frangipani can grow into a small tree of 8 meters. With us in a tub without pruning, it stays with a tall tree / bush of up to 3 meters.
If the plant grows too high, she also prunes good pruning, the best thing is to trim the plant back in April and you can keep a plumeria around 100 cm. Almost throughout the season from May to the end of September, she gives beautiful flowers in all sorts of colors and shapes. In return, the temple tree may receive a small amount of poison every 2 weeks for flowering plants. Watering when the soil feels dry, in this way the flowers will remain. At first flowers are white with a yellow heart. As they age and are exposed to UV light, they turn pink. If the fall is coming and the temperature falls below + 10ºC, the temple tree loses its leaf. This leaf will appear again from mid to late May when your plant is in a warm place.
In winter, therefore, do not give manure more frost freezing at + 10ºC and leave in a light place. In spring when the chance of frost has gone awake get out again (possibly potting if necessary) and she can rejoice with her lush bloom. The frangipani likes to be in a warm sunny place in the summer. Winter hardness zone 11 (+ 8ºC).
