I really love the shape. When it grows larger it will be spectacular in flower.

I bet it will ☺

It's already pretty spectacular; however, when grows larger it should have even more flower spikes.

Yes it is with more spikes even better.

She could pass for a P.obtusa with those big glossy leaves.

I ve just looked that is a beauty to yes glossy leaves known as the Singapore grave yard flower.

In Hawaii all Plumerias are called grave yard flower. They're so widely planted in grave yards.

Yes that is understandable.

Like Rhododendrons are here then grown in in old grave yards but they dont call the Rhododendron a grave yard plant here.

Not sure why or when Plumerias became grave yard trees.

Well at least it's a peaceful plant being called the grave yard tree as I live next door to a grave yard peaceful until the people of the church arrive .☺
