Firstly, I have bought several plumerias from Florida Colors Nursery and all were beautifully rooted and in great shape! For people new to them, they do cut off all leaves for shipping. As to Diamond Rainbow, it has exceeded my expectations! I felt the need to write this review because during winter and Spring I house my plumerias in an inside greenhouse under shop lights which are low intensity so that many plumerias don’t display good color. But Diamond Rainbow looks just like the photo in these low light conditions!
