Pink Frangipani (Plumeria rubra)

Pink Frangipani (Plumeria rubra).  Plumeria commemorates Charles Plumier, a 17th-century French botanist who described several tropical species. Plumeria rubra is a tree that grows in a “candelabrum” shape typical of Plumerias with a single trunk and multiple branches of a similar length that support an open spreading canopy. The tree can reach a height of 9m, though they are generally much smaller. Most plumerias in gardens are hybrids. Plumerias are very salt tolerant.
