Meanie:

Yes, Hilo Beauty has almost black-red flowers and are pretty spectacular on a large tree.

It's a good job that I haven't been able to find one in the UK (I looked earlier)!

Meanie:

Well, since you're unable to find this Plumeria in the U.K. I will post a pic of a nice tree. lol! : > )

Don't bait me - I keep saying no more tender plants (as the conservatory will be full this winter)!! Now , because of you, I've added another Clerodendrum!
As an aside, I'm now 99% certain that my Polyanthese is about to flower!!

There's nothing like a full conservatory or full yard. I have so many plants in my front and back yard...it's not funny. I've been selling some of the duplicate lately.
I sold my African Tulip tree I posted over a week on GoY....I have about 100 more to go. lol! : > )

Has your Polianthes tuberosa bloomed before?

Camillia:

Thanks! : > )

I would be more than happy to buy one from you specially the African Tulip tree but I am so far away.

Superb flower .: o))

It hasn't flowered for me before (I've had it 18 months now).
I know what you mean about a full yard. Thankfully, as spring comes and we find out what we've lost, Sue and I share them out so that I can start filling my garden up over the summer with more plants that I didn't need again!

Camilla:

Thanks! : > )

Yes, you do live many thousands of miles away form me.

African Tulip tree are very common in most tropical and subtropical areas of the world. It should be available for sale there. If not, check out a local botanical garden where you could possibly get seeds.

HI there Delonix,

This Pink Plumeria is my daughter's preferred. I bought a pink plumeria last year, but it doesn't have flowers. How long does it take to bloom?

27 Aug, 2010

 

Aleyna:

It depends if it's seed-grown or cutting-grown. Seed-grown plants can take 5 years or sometimes longer. Cutting-grown plants will usually bloom within the same year they're planted. They do need at least 4 to 5 hours of direct sun to bloom though.

Oh boy, not again... sincerelly I'm not in the mood to wait for the next 5 years to this plant have flowers... LOL!!!
Will give it to my daughter's boyfriend... he has a huge garden, maybe he will be more sucessfull about it.... :)

Aleyna:

That's funny! lol!

What's very strange about seed-grown plants also...is that it can take 2 or 3 years to find out exactly what color flowering Plumeria you have. They don't usually have the real flower color the first few time it blooms - I know very odd.

Virtually everyone here gets cuttings from trees they like from neighbors...at least we know what color we have and they bloom very quickly.
