Plumeria 'Plastic Pink' (Plumeria 'Plastic Pink')

...and another! How long has it taken for it to reach it's present size, D1?

Lori:

The flowers actually are fuller now. I should have posted a more current photo. :>)

It's been in the same spot for about 11 years. It was in a pot. I purchased it in late 2000 or early 2001 as a 18" (46cm) tall plant. It had a set-back in 2009 when a big branch broke off during the Santa Ana Winds.

Here's the damage in Sept of 2009.

It's a possibility someone will take it. Especially, if it's small.

This variety leafs out late (late April, May). It keeps its leaves through most of February, though. May was a cooler month so they were leafing out slowly this year. I saw big plumeria trees in San Diego blooming in March and April, though. April is the soonest my Plumeria rubra trees have ever bloomed. My old Plumeria obtusa 'Singapore' would bloom anytime of the year as long as it was hot. I must get anther one.
