The Plumeria is a traditionally tropical plant with strongly scented flowers. The Plumeria is also called Franchipani which refers to the 16th century marquis Franchipani, the Italian inventor of perfume based on the smell of this plant. Since its invention, the fragrance of this plant is still used in the perfume industry.

Wat een prachtige plant heb ik ontvangen! Veel mooier en groter dan op de foto. De bloei zal niet lang op zich laten wachten. Echter, de onderste (oudste) blaadjes beginnen geel te worden en hangen slap. Hoort dit erbij of doe ik iets verkeerd?
En de ontvangen plant zag er nog mooier uit dan de afbeelding(Franchipani).
