Frangipani (Plumeria)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Frangipani (Plumeria)
  • Latin Name: Plumeria spp.
  • Family Name: Apocynaceae
Frangipani produces a milky sap (similar to the Oleander, to which it is related) which is toxic to both humans and animals and can cause serious skin and eye irritations much like those caused by Euphorbias, so this is not one to feed to tortoises or have planted anywhere near their enclosure.

The beautiful flowers of the Frangipani are most often seen in white or cream with yellow centres, but they come in a wide variety of colours.
