FRANGIPANI RED

Frangipani RedBy Swaminathan CC BY 2.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Plumeria rubra
Description

Spreading shrub or small tree to a height of 7–8 m  and similar width. It has a thick succulent trunk and sausage-like blunt branches covered with a thin grey bark. The branches are somewhat brittle and when broken, ooze a white latex, or sap, which can be irritating to the skin and mucous membranes. The large green leaves can reach 30 to 50 cm (12–20 in) long and are arranged alternately and clustered at the end of the branches. They are deciduous, falling in the cooler months of the year. The flowers are terminal, appearing at the ends of branches over the summer. Often profuse and very prominent, they are strongly fragrant, and have five petals. The colours range from the common pink to white with shades of yellow in the centre of the flower. The flowers are 5-7.5 cm  in diameter, and only rarely go on to produce seed - 20-60 winged seeds are contained in a 17.5 cm  pod

Keep them in crumbly, cacti type soil. In Winter, leave the watering to nature. Keep the root system warm but dry. | Tim Matthews - Tenambit, NSW 16-Mar-2013
