Photography & Travel: Name This Flower

photography-flowers-tropical-travel-swittersbOne of the few splashes of color during a trip to Kiritimati (Christmas Island), I could never quite identify this flowering tree/shrub. I couldn’t find out if it is native or introduced to the London, Kiritimati locale.

    Plumeria (common name Frangipani). Its milky sap is toxic, so be sure wash your hands after handle it. It is native in many warm countries.
