Plumeria obtusa, commonly called pagoda tree or white frangipani, is a small, rounded tree of the dogbane family that typically grows to 10-15 'tall but less frequently to 25' tall. It is native to the Bahamas and the Greater Antilles, but has been introduced into a number of tropical areas around the world. Fragrant, 5-petaled, white flowers (to 1 3/4 diameter) have showy yellow throats. Flowers bloom in clusters from spring to fall, with heaviest bloom often occurring in July-August. In Hawaii, the flowers are commonly used in leis and to make perfumes. Narrow, obovate, shiny, dark green leaves (to 8long) have blunt tips, hence the specific epithet. Fruits are cylindrical seed pods (to 3-5 "long) which are rarely formed in cultivation.
