This is exactly the kind of book I was hoping to find. It tells me everything I wanted to know about the Plumeria plants and it's flowers. The book is well written and has tons of pictures. I was very impressed, for the price you pay- I now feel like I can grow my own Plumeria plants and even have them bloom.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
