Mary Moragne

Plumeria cv ‘Mary Moragne’

P. ‘Mary 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 daughter Mary.
