Description

Anyone who has seen the blossom of the white variety ‘Singapore White’ (Plumeria obtusa) with its small, yellow center during a holiday in a tropical or subtropical country will never forget it and want to decorate their own conservatory, terrace, balcony or south-facing living room windows with it. The immaculate flowers have such a tempting fragrance that they are still used for high quality perfumes. The petals are even and of such a gloss that they look like made from porcelain.Descended from the wild species Plumeria obtusa, 'Singapore White' is one of the world's most popular varieties, retaining part to most of its leaves in winter, while other frangipani usually shed their leaves entirely. The growth of the shoots and roots is weaker, which is why in our Central European climate the abundance of flowers is lower than in the white-yellow selections of Plumeria rubra, which consequently outrank 'Singapore White' in this country.

General information on Frangipani (Plumeria):
Each individual plant blooms at a different time, making accurate predictions impossible. In our experience, the flowering period in this country is usually in the mid to late summer months. It is wrong to assume that flowers will only appear above a branching. Also saplings with no branching can produce flowers. Instead, they are most likely to branch after flowering! Plumeria prefer to grow in loose soil mixed with lava, expanded clay or coarse sand and are thankful for a regular spraying of the leaves (high humidity). The care of the water-storing plants (succulents) varies depending on the season: in summer, the plants need a constant supply of water. Drought will cause the leaves to discolorate and fall down. Add liquid compound fertilizer in half concentration to the watering water 3 to 4 times a month. In winter, when most of the leaves fall off, it is important to avoid wetness, which would rot the base of the plant. Therefore, water your Plumeria little and at greater intervals - but not “not at all”.
