Hello Abigail! This classic beauty offers gorgeous baby pink and white 3” blooms with bold yellow centers. The reflexed and highly overlapped petals coupled with the short inflos create striking bloom bouquets that pop against the green foliage. We’ll also note that Abigail is a prolific bloomer with a sweet, floral fragrance that you get to enjoy all season long!
This slow-growing, compact tree is a good choice for gardeners who are looking for a tree with a smaller footprint. A perk to note with Abigail is that she sets seed pods often making it fun for collectors and gardeners who enjoy seed propagation. To further enhance this point, we’ll mention that she is the seed parent for at least 10 plumerias here at Florida Colors Plumeria Nursery. Speaking of plumeria parents, Abigail’s pod parent is Maui Beauty.
A little history on Abigail: This plumeria is named for Luc’s great-niece, Abigail Jonckheere, and is one of the first cultivars grown from seed by Carol and Luc Vannoorbeeck.
Typical Shipping Size
Typical size of your plumeria when shipped:
Our Plumeria are priced as single tip plants unless specified, but you may receive a multi-tip plant.
- Rooted plants are typically 10-18 inches from the soil line. (Depending on the Cultivar)
- Grafted plants are Typically 12-20 inches from the soil line. (Depending on the Cultivar)
- Callused Cuttings are typically 10-18 inches long. (Depending on the Cultivar)
If you purchase a Dwarf you can expect it to be smaller if you purchase a medium or tall grower you can expect them to be larger when shipped. Later in the season our plumeria are typically larger than the beginning of the season.
When You Get Your Plumeria
What you should know:
- We ship plumeria with the leaves cut off per requirements by the USDA.
- Every plumeria is inspected for any signs of damage and insects.
- We spray each plumeria with minerial oil prior to shipping as a precaution.

- Soak the roots in plain water for 2-4 hours to hydrate your plumeria. Soaking with Super Thrive or Vitazyme is even better.
- We grow all our plumeria we ship in 1 gal pots, By the time we ship they are ready for a 3 gal pot.
- Be sure your soil is well draining, plumeria love water but hey do not like their root to be wet.
- Water your plumeria well for the next two days, then as needed. Do not water if the soil is wet.
- We grow all our plumeria in full sun. So we suggest you place your new plumeria in full sun. Minimum of 6 hours per day.
