Plumeria Dwarf Pink - Champa, Frangipani

Common name(s): Champa, Frangipani

Scientific name: Plumeria obtusa

Description

                   Plumerias are tropical trees famous for their gorgeous flowers which are used to make leis. In regions with cold winters, plumerias can be grown in containers and brought indoors when the weather cools in autumn. Other common names are frangipani and Hawaiian lei flowers. Plumeria trees bloom in a variety of different colors. The tree itself is rather unusual in appearance; the 12 to 20 inch long, coarse, deciduous leaves cluster only at the tips of the rough, blunt, sausage-like, thick, grey-green branches. Branches are upright and rather crowded on the trunk forming a vase or umbrella shape with age. They are rather soft and brittle and can break but are usually sturdy unless they are mechanically hit or disturbed. The crown loses its leaves for a short time during the winter displaying the coarse-textured, stubby branches. Milky sap is exuded from the branches when they are bruised.

Plumeria Dwarf Pink Plant care and instructions

                     Plumeria care, for the most part, is minimal. While plumerias don't like wet feet, they should be watered deeply when irrigated and then allowed to dry out some before watering again. They also need to be fertilized about every two to three weeks throughout their active growing season. Reduce watering in mid-fall and stop completely once the plants enter dormancy in winter. Resume regular watering as new growth appears in spring. A high phosphate (phosphorus) fertilizer, like 10-30-10, will help encourage blooms. Giving them too much nitrogen will only result in more foliage growth and less flowering.  Plumerias may be pruned as needed (up to 12 inches from the ground) in late winter or early spring (prior to new growth); however, any drastic or hard pruning done may reduce flowering.  These plants can also be propagated by seeds or cuttings in spring, with cuttings being the easiest and most preferred method. Insert cuttings about 2 inches in potting mix and water thoroughly. Plumerias require at least 1 inch of rain (or equivalent watering) each week. More water may be required for plumerias growing in containers, but don't overwater or the trunks will rot. Feed plants twice a month during the growing season with a high phosphorus fertilizer. Plumerias normally require little pruning, but any shaping should be done in spring. Plumerias are sensitive to cold and should be protected when temperatures dip into the 40Fs. Check periodically for pests such as spider mites, whiteflies, and mealybugs.

Light - Plumerias do best in full sun. 

Place - Outdoors 

Water - More water may be required for plumerias growing in containers, but don't overwater or the trunks will rot. Don't water if the soil is moist. Reduce watering in the mid-fall and don't water at all during winter as the plant is dormant. Resume regular watering as new plants grow in spring.

Fertilizer - Feed every two weeks during the blooming season from May to September.

Temperature - 21 to 30 Degree celsius
