The flowers of Plumeria ‘India’ are yellow to orange enhanced by strong red veining.

The flowers are of heavy texture with good keeping quality.

Scent of the flowers is strong and sweet.

Plumeria ‘India’ is a fast growing plant with strong and thick branches.

The picture at the end of this post shows Plumeria ‘India’ flowering on May 15, 2012 in Chicago, plant hardiness zone 5.

This plumeria plant, with no inflorescence showing, was received and planted on April 4, 2012 as an unrooted cutting.

Soon after planting the inflorescence, flower stalk, emerged and continued to develop.

As of May 15, 2012 Plumeria ‘India’ is anchored in the pot indicating root development.

The flower looks similar to the frangipani I used to have growing in my garden in West Africa years ago. It's lovely.
