Gorgeous colours, Janine.

Just curious : here (South Africa) we get the same plants, but call them "Frangipani". Is this something different?
#3963229

Janine Russell level-deluxe February 19, 2007

Irene, thanks very much for your encouragement. Evidently Frangipani is the common name for Plumeria. Here's a link.
