According to wikipedia, plumeria (common name Frangipani) is a genus of flowering plants of the family that includes Dogbane: the Apocynaceae. These flowers are native to Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and South America. It contains 7-8 species of mainly deciduous shrubs and small trees.
Plumeria is a tropical plant. Despite the smell by which I find it so sweet, this flower seems to be unnoticed by many. I remember when I was a kid, we have those in front of our house and I like the smell most especially at night by which they were most fragrant.
The color is just so perfect, so mellow for my Mellow Monday.
