Wild Plumeria is known for its beautiful white flowers.

It is an evergreen, relatively small tree or shrub, reaching a height of up to 6 m. It usually has one or two slender trunks that branch close to the ground forming a dense slightly spreading crown.

The plant looks attractive because of its beautiful leaves, which are unique fiddle-shaped or like the shape of a cobra head which makes it distinctive from other Frangipani.

Large clusters of bright white flowers with small yellow centers cover this tree as a beautiful bouquet, hence the common name. The flowers are not fragrant.
