Learn More about Lei Flowers

Bring the unmistakable scent of Hawaii to your garden with the addition of  Plumeria rubra. This tropical plant loves the sun and thrives on infrequent deep watering (overwatering will kill it). The highly fragrant star-shaped flowers, used in leis, vary from ivory whites to warm yellows, pinks, rosy reds and multicolored pastels. See (and smell) plumeria's many variations at the annual show and sale of the Southern California Plumeria Society on in Balboa Park Sept. 1-2. More information is at www.socalplumeriasociety.com
