Plumeria, known also as Frangipani

It's fragrance, a most exquisite perfume,
The Plumeria, or Frangipani, bloom.

Seen here, a packaged double Plumeria lei.  Our Plumeria flowers are shipped directly from the island of Moloka'i.  Those who have experienced Plumeria flowers tend to weep and thrill at the scent and feel of their double Plumeria Carolina Flower Lei.

Plumeria lei for a kama'aina girl

We delivered this beautiful plumeria lei to a young woman who grew up in Hawaii but is now living in North Carolina.  She just graduated from East Carolina University.

It's a busy spring at Carolina Flower Lei!

It's been fun to meet so many people this spring from all over the country who are visiting Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill for the college graduations at our great universities.

I've been working hard to deliver beautiful lei to parents, friends and relatives who are giving lei as gifts for their special graduates.

One proud mother sent me this photo from her daughter's graduation at Duke University.
Her daughter did a great job decorating her cap with beautiful Lilly Pulitzer designs. The orchid and rosebud lei was a perfect accessory to her cap and gown.

If you're planning a special event, let me know how Carolina Flower Lei can help!  See more at
