It looks great! The plumeria here are all in full flower. I noticed a few trees which have some die-back from the severe drought. Large established trees are less likely to suffer from a bad drought.

I have that and Plastic pink..that seems to be of smaller leaf..more branching. The Plumeria obtusa..way behind where it was last year this time. I'm thinking it should stay outside. Indoor- Outdoor moves cause too much stress.
P.obtusa did so well last year,I thought for sure it was going to be top notch potted plant. You can see it under the window in back. Small leaves.

My largest Plumeria tree in the ground was sold to me as 'Plastic Pink' (purchased in 2001). I think it has too much red in it to be Plastic Pink, though. It's 12' tall by 12' wide. It's not looking its best this year because of the drought. It's been in the ground since 2005.

Plumeria obtusa 'Singapore' is the most tropical. It needs a lot of heat and sun. I had one for many years. It did so well until a very horrible heat wave burned it up! Unfortunately, it could not recovery from the severe burn damage. What I loved about P. obtusa 'Singapore' was that it would bloom anytime the weathered stayed warm...that meant even during the winter, when the other P rubra plants were dormant.
