Frangipani Flower

Frangipani flowers are known for their unique fragrant clusters of colorful, bright, waxy and long lasting flowers.
Frangipani (Plumeria rubra), also known as the Hawaiin Lei flower, is native to warm tropical areas of the Pacific Islands, Caribbean, South America and Mexico. Frangipani is withstand subtropical climate. Temple Tree, Champa, Dead man's fingers, Egg Flower (southern China) Amapola (Venezuela) are other synonyms of Frangipani.
Kingdom -Plantae

The flowers of the Frangipani come in gorgeous rose-pink color brushed with bronze. Frangipani flowers are highly scented during nights and often used in bouquets. Frangipani flowers have wonderful tropical essence. The frangipani flower is propeller shaped with a delicate yellow center melting into the creamy white outer petals. The umbel like clusters of frangipani flowers at the end of terminal branches open over several weeks and each day the ground is carpeted with fresh frangipani flowers which are gathered for preparing the concrete.

Plumeria can be divided into two main groups, the obtusa and the rubra. Obtusa plumerias have rounded shiny leaves while the rubra have duller pointed leaves. Obtusa frangipani generally have white flowers and a strong fragrance while rubra have colorful flowers but less scent.

Hi Foozi,

Hi Foozi,

This is superb capture. Very nice bright colours and you have used a great PoV to have some leaves with the bunch. Great composition.

We do commonly find these treees in India. Actully there are many differnt types of these. There one more type which looks exactly similar to this but is rose-pink in clour and has almost same fragrance. I will post the phot just for you in some days.

Hello Foozi,
Again an interesting composition! I like the way you took these special flowers in between two ranges of leaves. Good light-management too. I know the Frangipani flowers from our Botanical garden.
Thanks and kind regards

Hello Foozi !
Once again, you show us a wonderful species of flower - I love the shape and the soft colors of the flower, they stand out nicely on the dark BG, and the picture is also very nicely composed. Even the leaves are beautiful, and the note is very interesting, specially for those, like me, who didn't know this flower. Very well done !

Hi Foozi,

I looked at this beautiful flower and heard Hawaiian music in my head. This is such a gorgeous shot with the flower between the pretty leaves and the dark background. Colors and details are nothing short of amazing. I'm so glad you included the bud in the picture. Clarity and composition are superb.


Hello Foozi:

Very beautiful flowers and beautiful composition may be too saturated color, but the visual impact is very good.
Best regards.

This looks almost like an artificial plant!

Hello Foozi,
The mix of colours in this photo is so beautiful. Splendid clarity. Good sharp details. Perfect chosen composition.

Hi Foozi,

The large green leaves are framing well the flowers. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Frangipani flowers. It is clear and precise. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Bonjour Foozi,
Très bonne composition avec ce judicieux encadrement végétal et bonne maitrise des hautes lumières sur des couleurs difficiles à exploiter.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
