Even Houston's winters aren't warm enough to keep plumeria alive, but I couldn't resist picking up an odd-looking rooted stick with a few leaves emerging from the top on a visit to a local garden center. I'll watch what it does for the year, and if I'm really ambitious I might even try to keep it alive indoors through the winter. Don't know if I'll ever see flowers, but it's fun to experiment.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
