When Does Plumeria Bloom?

Plumeria is a popular flowering plant that also goes by the names frangipani, tropical apricot, and Hawaiian lei flower. Plumeria plants have large clusters of fragrant flowers that range in color from yellow to orange to pink. The bloom time for plumeria varies depending on the variety you choose.

When Does Plumeria Bloom?

Plumeria, or frangipani, is a flowering plant that blooms in the spring. Plumeria flowers are white and pink. They can grow up to 3 feet tall and have a sweet, pleasant scent. The plumeria’s flower buds open up fully during the morning hours of 5:00 AM to 7:30 AM.

Plumeria flowers bloom for about 3 months before they fade away. When you cut your plumeria’s long stem after it has finished blooming, it will continue to grow more branches on which new flowers will emerge again next year!

How Long Does Plumeria Bloom For?

Plumeria flowers can last for several weeks, depending on the variety. Some varieties bloom for as long as six weeks, while others only last for a few days.

The length of time the flowers are in bloom depends mainly on the temperature and amount of water that you give your plant.

How Long Does It Take Plumeria To Bloom?

The flowering time of plumeria depends on the variety and is variable from 6 months to 3 years. The longer it takes for the plant to bloom, the more flowers you will have. In addition, some varieties are more likely to bloom more than once.

The most common way of determining whether or not a plumeria will bloom is by looking at its trunk: if there is an indication of new growth around the base, then that means it may start blooming soon.

When Should I Plant Plumeria?

Plumerias are tropical plants and like warm temperatures. Plant them in the spring, after the danger of frost has passed and the soil is at least 60 degrees F (15 C). In warmer climates, you can plant them outdoors in early winter. In colder climates (zone 5 or lower), plant your plumeria indoors for about six weeks before it’s time to take it outside.

Plumeria needs plenty of sun—at least six hours per day—and well-drained soil. Soil should be amended with compost before planting to improve drainage and aeration while providing nutrients for healthy growth. Be sure to water your newly planted plumeria regularly until its roots are established (about two months after planting).

Does Plumeria Bloom More Than Once?

The answer is no, you cannot expect your plumeria to bloom more than once in a season. While the flowers of the plumeria plant are beautiful, they tend to wilt after about two weeks and then die off completely by four weeks.

If you have planted your plumeria in the right conditions with plenty of sunlight, you should expect it to bloom in either spring or summer—usually around April through July depending on where you live.

If you live somewhere that experiences colder temperatures during the winter months (above freezing), then this means your tree may not bloom until next year’s springtime or early summer season depending on how long winter lasts where you live.

Will Plumeria Bloom Again After Being Cut?

Yes, but it depends on how long you wait between cutting and new growth. Plumeria is a tropical plant that blooms once a year, so if you cut your plumeria too late in the season (or don’t water it enough), it won’t have time to establish new flowers before winter hits its stride.

In terms of pruning, there are two schools of thought: one says that you should prune only when necessary—the other says you should do some light pruning every year. Pruners will be needed regardless of which method you choose!

If possible, try to avoid removing more than one-third of the plant at any given time; otherwise, your plant could end up looking very bare and sad indeed!

Why Is My Plumeria Not Blooming?

Plumeria is a wonderfully fragrant tropical plant that thrives in the hot, humid climate of southern Florida. It’s also known as frangipani or lei flower, and it’s a popular addition to gardens for its beautiful flowers.

If you’re growing plumeria in your garden and wondering why your plumeria isn’t blooming, here are a few possible reasons for this:

The plant is too young. Plumeria needs to be at least 3 years old before it will bloom. At that age, it will produce a single flower on each side of the stem with both male and female parts. If you’ve recently planted your plumeria, you’ll have to wait until next year before seeing blooms.

You’ve overwatered the plant. Plumeria likes moist soil but not soggy soil—if there’s standing water in the saucer under your pot’s drain hole (or even if there isn’t!), keep an eye on how much water you’re giving it and try cutting back on watering until the soil is dry to touch between watering sessions (about once every week).


Hopefully, we’ve given you a better idea of when to expect your plumeria to bloom, and what to do if it doesn’t. The truth is, with all the variables involved in growing this plant, there are no hard-and-fast rules. But by taking care of your plumeria early on (watering regularly and fertilizing with organic mulch), you should be able to enjoy its beauty for many years!
