Pua Melia (Plumeria species)
Common Name: Plumeria
Family: Apocynaceae—Dogbane Family

The beautiful fragrant Plumeria was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1800's . . Plumeria’s fragrant, star-like (5-petalled) blossoms (pua melia) are among Hawaii’s most popular lei flowers.
Plumeria vary in colour, and may be white, red, pink, yellow, or many combinations of these colours. There are numerous natural and cultivated hybrids of plumeria, with many variations in the blossoms’ size, color and fragrance.
Plumeria blooms primarily from March to October, and then the tree goes dormant during the winter months depending on it's location and elevation on the island . .
. The blossoms are usually strung lengthwise through their centers using the kui pololei method when making Lei . . A standard 40-inch (100-cm) Lei requires about 45 to 55 blossoms . .
.Plumeria’s deer-antler-like branches grow readily when they are broken off and simply stuck into the ground. The milky sap of the plant is poisonous and should be avoided.
Plumeria is also known as the Temple Tree and Frangipani . .
