Robert? How do your pudica do in the winter while planted in the ground?

Cheryl there are huge plumeria trees on my street so I should be ok. These pudica haven't been through a winter yet but I feel confident they will do well.

Is it true that pudica are heavy and long bloomers? I have seriously considered getting a pudica cutting but I've been after color. My first 2 plumies were whites.

To me pudica has it own charms so different from other plumeria. Ever blooming with white blooms against the dark green, compound leaves it has it own space in the yard.... I love them. Lovey dubby

This is very true. For a time I didn't care for it - now I have come to appreciate its special qualities. I have several Plumeria pudica hedges.

There is a 'pink' pudica hybrid; or actually there are two. The one to get is New Srisupakorn from Thailand which is compact and has inherited the P. pudica resistance to rust. The blooms, however, only have the very slightest hint of pink.

I have both "pink" pudica and the white and the "pink " has like Hetty said 90% of the pink is located on the back of the flower! iT IS MORE FRAGRANT but is doesn't have the different leaves and they don't bloom as long the flower is nice. I have several from Thailand grafted and a few cuttings and the cuttings are NOT as easy to root and I do not see the BUSH that they Bridal pudica will create,

I couldn't be happier, Mike. Maybe a little more anxious and nervous to do right by these plants (an you) but happy as a clam to have these as long as I get my questions answered. So far, so good!

I'm new here so please bear with me. RobertB did you root the Pudica? I have a single stemed plant that is now over 4' tall and was thinking of cutting the top off in spring and root it so the rest of it would branch. It is very thin so I was thinking that the usual drying to callus the end would dehydrate it. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks PegThumb of 2012-09-21/pcput/da1abb

wow that is a skinny long thing!
I would definitely wait till spring and then maybe cut it into 3 or 4 pieces and root all in the same pot. You'll get a bushy shrub that way and the cuttings root easily and set bloom easily too.

Thanks for the info guys. Do I just cut and dip in root tone and right into soil? No waiting time like other cuttings?
