Please see my Plumeria www site at:
It is questionable whether the climate in Washington DC will be
acceptable for plumeria. I would be interested in learning of your
experiences and results.
I have plumeria seeds in a great variety of colors; both named and
unnamed cultivars that I have collected in Hawaii and here in Houston.
I sell them for 4 for $1 plus $1 P&H.
