Julie Moragne

Plumeria cv ‘Julie Moragne’

P. ‘Julie Moragne’ 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 pollenation of Plumeria rubra varieties. The results are some of the most spectacular plumeria cultivars known. He named this cultivar for his granddaughter Julie.

There has been some confusion among plumeria enthusiasts with respect to the ‘Julie Moragne’ cultivar. Due to an unfortunate misunderstanding, when a certain cv ‘Tillie Hughes’ was harvested, it was thought to be ‘Julie Moragne’. The mistake was not discovered until the errant cuttings began to bloom…
