Frangipani, aka plumeria is (according to Wikipedia)... "a genus of flowering plants in the dogbane family, Apocynaceae. It contains seven or eight species of mainly deciduous shrubs…"

This one is blooming against the backdrop of our white back yard fence; I just planted it here as a cutting, last fall. Guess I picked a good spot.

Ohhhhhhhh, I love the fragrance of the plumeria. Lucky you that they grow in your climate; it gets too cold where we are. ;(
