1998- Still going Plumeria.

1998- Still going Plumeria. (Plumeria rubra (Atabaiba Rosada))

This is Celadine. Its much more shrub to be than tree. This winter it had developed root rot I believe and it never grew well until very late summer. It did bloom well. Stress might have helped that.

It’s recovering fortunately, Stan. You’ve obviously got the healing hands!

Its been a story keeping this one Kate. I had it near this size in 2010,planted it all wrong in the ground. It rotted all roots and branches down to a stick trunk that wet winter. Look close and see where it first branches into three mains? THAT'S all it was 11 years ago. I had to grow it indoors a full year...then back outside and its been slow but steady.
Some of these old potted plants seem to become pet-like.
