Image #   291379D
Name:   Plumeria Petal Upper Surface
Copyright:   Copyright 2009 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Upper surface of a plumeria flower petal (Plumeria sp.). Plumeria is an aromatic tree or shrub (common name Frangipani) that is common in most tropical environments. The Plumeria flower petal surface is composed of tightly pack epidermal cells. These epidermal cells have a distinct surface pattern as seen in this image. The common name, frangipani, is derived from the Italian noble who invented a Plumeria-scented perfume in the sixteenth century. An essential oil from this flower is used in the perfume industry. The Plumeria plant is related to Oleander and both possess poisonous, milky sap, similar to that of the succlent Euphorbia. Plumeria flowers are most fragrant at night in order to attract sphinx moths for pollination. In Hawaii the Plumeria tree is grown for the production of leis. There are over 300 named varieties of Plumeria.
