Plumeria rubra Honey Moon


Plumeria Honey Moon, also called and registered as Plumeria Bowen Yellow, is a Frangipani cultivar from Plumeria rubra.

The Plumeria or Frangipani, a genus in the dogbane family (Apocynaceae), is native to Central- and South America and the Caribbean Islands, but has been grown enormous in popularity in our home country Thailand as Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand lifted the curse of that plant by renaming it as Leelawadee (read more about @ Plumeria Penang Beach). Nowadays there are thousands of stunning cultivars around and they`re beloved for their ornamental flower forms, their beautiful colors and their tantalising scent. Most of the Plumerias are highly fragrant, no wonder that the flowers are used to produce perfums, and each single cultivar or species seems to have its very own scent.The yellow Plumeria Honey Moon (Plumeria Bowen Yellow) reach heights of about 6 meters and in tropical or subtropical regions they`re in flower
nearly all around year.

The bright yellow flowers with a small white edge have a sweet scent and get a size of about 6 - 8 cm in diameter. The tropical tree or shrub tolerates cold temperatures to about 0°C for a short period and is best cultivated in full sun to partial shade. A common mistake is to overwater the plants, which will lead to root rot.
