Yes, she will.

This plumeria is a beauty! The top has been cut back a bit since this pic was taken. I wish I could have gotten the cuttings! It has many unique large pink flowers...although, it's difficult to see from this photo.

I can see the flowers at the top, I think Milky is nt giving hers enough light as her green house I notice has polythene over it which stops light and all plants to flower needs a lot of light if they like the sunny side not shaded.

I was thinking of winter time Maureen even with a passionflower it needs at least 4 hours a day true daylight even in winter.

So like some of our trees over here then I thought they were shurbs not trees lol until Andy put these on the reason I said light as that is what bob uses special lights when you asked him how he gets his to flower.

Sixpence:

Plumerias are shrubs and trees...it depends on the variety. The largest varieties grow to more than 30ft/10m tall. Although, here in San Diego the tallest varieties rarely grow more than 25ft/7.6m tall.

Plumeria trees/shrubs, when dormant don't need any sunlight nor water at all (and prefer not to have water). They can actually be put in a dark basement, attic or garage just as long as it doesn't freeze.

In spring/summer/fall plumeria trees require at least 6 - 8 hours of sunlight to bloom well. I've seen trees in semi-shade produce flowers, however, it is a sun-loving tree.
