We have no definite number, but due to hybridization we would best guess a lot. Sorry we do not have any figures.

-- Kunane Leigh (, January 23, 1999.

There are many different species of plumerias. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 7. However, this number was reduced from over 100 originally. They are found throughout Central America, the Carribean Islands, and Mexico.

There are currently about 500 different cultivars, although not all are registered with the PSA in Houston
