Plumeria caracasana var. SG Poached Eggs
(Medium to large Evergreen)
Plumeria caracasana is a very beautiful and unusual evergreen medium sized frangipani tree. It is closely related to Plumeria pudica and has the same beautiful dark green, glossy, spoon shaped leaves.
However P.caracasana grows into a tree and the leaves are much larger and frond like giving a very tropical rainforest plant look. The tree does not sucker from the lower trunk. It grows into a beautifully shaped tree with a clean trunk with very smooth silver grey bark.
The 3" / 75mm flowers are also much larger than P.pudica.
Plumeria caracasana is an exceptional landscaping evergreen frangipani, being very beautiful even when not in flower.
It is much more cold tolerant than other frangipanis.
Unlike all other frangipanis, P.caracasana is completely resistant to frangipani rust disease (as are most of the P.caracasana hybrids).
Like its close relative P.pudica, P.caracasana has no perfume.
P.caracasana var SG poached eggs has much larger flowers at 4'' / 100mm and has a much larger golden yellow centre than other P.caracasana flowers, looking like bunches of poached eggs all over the tree.
Rare and exceptional species selection, exclusive to Sacred Garden Frangipanis.
