Yellow Frangipani (Plumeria Stenophylla)
Yellow frangipani or plumeria stenophylla flower. Plumeria's are a tropical flowering tree, sometimes called "frangipani" in the plant family APOCYNACEAE, Though tropical by nature, when protected from frost, they are well suited to subtropical or temperate climates.
Plumeria are valued as landscape plants, ornamentals, and for their flowers. The flowers come in seemingly endless variety of color, size and fragrance.
The Plumeria flowers are more fragrant at night in order to attract pollinators. Plumeria species can propagated by taking a cutting of leafless stem tips in spring, letting them "scab over" and then inserted into soil. They can be propagated by tissue culture or from germinated seeds.
