My Plumeria rubra 'Samoan Fluff'


My Plumeria rubra 'Samoan Fluff' (Plumeria rubra 'Samoan Fluff')

My Samoan Fluff in the front yard is in full bloom. I love the fragrance on this one...it's very perfumy! It's getting so tall, I can barely get a good photo. Photo taken Sept. 8, 2012.

Thanks! It has the best fragrance of any of my Plumeria rubra varieties. Of course, Plumeria obtusa 'Singapore' is the most fragrant by far.

This plant got some damaged branches during winter. Big branches from the Jacaranda tree feel on it during storms and broke some of the plumeria branches.

That is a shame I hope it recovers well for you.

It's ok. It's leafing out right now. It has some flower spikes. Last year it looked like it was going to die because of the branches were so shriveled and soft due to the severe drought. With the rains we had this winter it looks very good now.

Thats great so they are good for bouncing back then.

Yes, they bounce back when the conditions are better, especially when grown in the ground. Grown in a pot is another story. I've had them die in the severe drought or burn up during heatwaves.

So they are better in the ground for survial and success.

It definitely does better in the ground.
