Plumeria cv ‘Moragne # 106’
P. ‘Moragne # 106’ is one of the famous Moragne hybrids produced by the late Mr. William Moragne, Sr. of Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii during the 1950s. After nearly twenty years of experiments, Mr. Moragne performed the first documented cross pollination of Plumeria rubra varieties. The results are some of the most spectacular plumeria cultivars known. This cultivar is not yet named and is referred to by its original designation.
