Severity scale:

Plumeria is a perennial, deciduous branching shrub or small tree with milky sap, leathery leaves in glossy dark green with conspicuous veins, and beautiful clusters of five-petaled flowers in a pinwheel shape. Those fragrant, showy flowers are most commonly white with a yellow center or various shades of pink, red, yellow, orange, and purple. The plant is native to warm, tropical areas like the Pacific Islands, Caribbean, and Mexico, so the vibrantly colored flowers are used to create leis.
