About Selby Gardens

What's In Bloom?

  • Plumeria rubra (Dogbane family)

    Plumerias are some of the most popular trees of the tropics, famous for their gorgeous flowers. If you have ever been presented with a lei neckless, they were most likely plumerias! Almost every hotel in a tropical island country will have a Plumeria planted somewhere on its grounds. Yet, the plant is foreign to most of the places we associate it with. Beloved by so many, they have been carried over the oceans and across the globe, finding homes anywhere absent of freezes, even the dry southern California desert.
