Plumeria flower

What to look for when you want to see a flower.
Frangipani flower (grey)

Frangipani Flower

The goal of every grower is, of course, their own flower. But how do you get the frangipani to present us with its beautiful flowers?
Frangipani Bud

Many proud owners look every day to see if their beloved frangipani is developing a bud (umbel). However, there are still many owners who look in the wrong place. The bud of a frangipani only develops at the tip of the shoot, where leaves normally develop. After flowering, a frangipani usually branches into up to 5 new shoots. However, it can also happen that no new branching develops!

Frangipani Bud

How longdoes it take for the finished flower to develop from the bud?

It takes 4-6 weeks from the discovery of the bud to the finished flower (it also always depends on the plant). There are slow-growing varieties that sometimes need more than 6 weeks from bud to flower.

Does my frangipani flower every year?

That depends on how many shoots your plant has. Here in Europe, the rule of thumb is that a flower can only develop on a shoot every 2 years, because it is only strong enough after 2 years. If you have a multi-shoot plant and not every shoot develops a flower, there can be flowers virtually every year.

Can I force my plant to flower? Fertiliser?

No. They can of course help the plant to get the right nutrients (fertiliser) but whether a flower develops in the end depends on many factors.

  1. The plant gets enough UV light (sunlight)
  2. The plant has enough water
  3. Night temperatures are not below 15°C
  4. The plant is mature and vigorous enough to flower

If all these factors fit, nothing should stand in the way of a beautiful flower.

When will my frangipani seedling flower?

If you have grown a frangipani from seed, it can take up to 4-10 years before the first flower develops. The plant must be strong enough for this. From a height of approx. 1m and a stem diameter of 5cm the plant should be ripe for flowering.

I have received / bought a cutting. When will it flower?

Cuttings are usually ready to flower immediately. If it does not have roots yet, the flower will appear the following year (after successful rooting). If it already has roots, it can flower in the same year.

No one can predict with 100% certainty how and when a frangipani will flower. But you can provide the plant with the ideal conditions so that it then presents us with beautiful flowers. Read here what you have to consider and what (secret) tips there might be.
