In Bloom: Plumeria

Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means? Plumeria. And lots of it. 

 

 

Today, we took a drive around Kaimuki and captured a few of the different varieties of plumeria blooming in full force. So get your lei needles out, or just snap off a stem for your favorite small vase. That sweet intoxicating perfume is too amazing to leave outside.

 

To view the largest collection of plumeria trees on the island visit Koko Crater Botanical Garden. For ideas on using plumeria in your home check out our book 'OHI: How to Gather and Arrange Hawaii's Flora.
