Plumeria or Frangipani is commonly known as Temple Tree in India. Hindu's use the flowers from this tree to offer to their Gods and its a common practice to plant this tree near the Temple hence the name Temple Tree. The English call it "Dead Man's Flower or "Life Tree" as its commonly planted in graveyards/cemetery's in some countries. The `Temple Tree` is possibly the most recognizable and broadly grown amongst all the trees that can be found in India. These trees have some very sweet-scented exotic flowers. The flowers remain in these trees for almost throughout the year. This tree is also know for its amazing power to produce leaves and flowers even after removing from the soil, because of which Buddhists and Mohammedans think the tree as a symbol of immortality.
