Often called as CHAMPA or CHAPHA, Plumeria is one of the most easiest growing plants. That is one of the primary reasons why landscape designers/horticulturist use them anywhere and everywhere. You find these plants along the roads, highways, in backyard, residential housing compounds, around commercial buildings, parks, gardens, everywhere.
3 reasons why you should have plumeria:
They are strong and sturdy.
The flower stays afresh for 10-20 days. The flowers have a very long shelf life. Hence even if the plant blooms just once every month, it looks as if the plant is laden with flowers always.
Flowers in all seasons and has a mild beautiful fragrance to it. It blooms in bunches making it look spectacular.
Plumeria has more than 300 varieties. Choose the one that is indigenous to your location. Use a big pot to plant them. They need regular supply of nutrients. Add lots of compost while potting them. Later on add compost every 45-60 days for initial 6-8 months and then once in every 75-90 days.
Happy Gardening 🙂
