Plumeria leis are a longtime favorite. Loved for their beauty as well as their fragrance. Hawaii’s lovely plumeria trees produce the most flowers during the summer months.

Plumeria is considered a sensitive lei. You must read our Terms and Conditions prior to ordering. Sensitive leis do not carry our guarantee if shipping takes 2 days or more. You are ordering at your own risk.

Plumeria leis are a bit delicate so we take some extra care in packing. This is so they remain fresh during shipping. Please have someone sign for your package at FedEx delivery.
Along with fresh orchid leis plumeria leis are the most popular in Hawaii. Due to the nature of the flower they do not last so long as orchid leis and should be worn very soon after they are received. We make your Hawaiian lei with the best plumeria flowers. Those are the ones that have just fully opened. We never use flowers off of the ground but prefer those from the top of the tree.
Native to Mexico plumeria trees were brought to Hawaii where they flourish. You will see them in parks and yards. The common yellow or Celadine variety is most often seen. The fragrance of the trees increases at night to attract moths for pollination. Plumeria is sometimes called ‘frangipani’ after an Italian perfume maker. In non-tropical areas they can be difficult to grow as they require a lot of sun.
If you need a large number of plumeria leis for a special occasion please contact us well in advance. Graduation leis create a huge demand so supplies can run short in May and June. Orders are filled according to when they are received and sent on your requested shipping date.
