Rainbow Plumeria (Plumeria sp.)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
We have several varieties of Plumeria trees in our garden. The blossoms they bear are very fragrant, and grow on the trees in clusters that look like little bouquets. They are favorites for lei-making in Hawaii. Most Plumeria varieties are deciduous, and at this time of year their branches are just beginning to show leaf buds. In Asia the Plumeria is known as frangipani.
