Wild frangipani

The Plumeria alba is native of the Caribbean (Anguilla, Antigua, Netherlands Antilles, Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Grenadines, Guadeloupe, Virgin Islands, Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, St. Vincent). Deciduous plant, it appears as a shrub, or as a small or medium size tree, with a rather broad foliage, which can reach about ten metres of height, with greyish stalks which tend to cork with the age. Plant rather sensible to the low temperatures, outside the tropical and subtropical zones is to be cultivated in pot in order to be sheltered in winter in luminous space with temperatures which are not to get lower than the 12-14°C, and to be replaced in open location in spring, possibly exposed to the south, as, for getting a good blooming, it needs at least 6-8 hours of sun per day.
