IN BLOOM: PLUMERIA

It's April and you know what that means... The start of one of our favorite seasons: Plumeria Season. So what does one do with herself during this glorious time of year? Press pause, take a walk around the neighborhood and enjoy the view (and smell). 

With dozens of species and hybrids, you can find plumerias in almost every shade of white, red, pink, and yellow. Their fragrance varies by species, with some recalling sweet fruit punch and some with more delicate floral notes.  We love them all- it's almost impossible to pick a favorite.

If you're interested in growing your own plumeria tree, don't waste your time looking for and sprouting seeds. Simply find the tree you admire most, ask for permission, and propagate a cutting.  You can do this by cutting a branch 1-2 feet from the tip, letting the cutting dry out for at least a week, and then planting it in soil with good drainage. 

Tada! Plumerias for everyone!
