Last summer in Hawaii, I fell in love with the plumeria. At the MN State Fair last August, I bought 3 plumeria "sticks" which were supposed to grow into plumeria trees. Two of them had leaves by fall, then hibernated but did not come back this spring. Last week I visited a friend who had just moved into a condo and she had 3 plumeria trees-one a good 4 feet high. She gave me her 2 small ones-the one pictured has blossoms, but no leaves. At the State Fair I also got one more "stick". If I'd known the ones last year were guaranteed, I could have saved the ones that didn't grow from last year I could have gotten them replaced. She felt sorry for me and gave me one anyway.
