[edit] Description
Kalachuchi is a small, deciduous tree, standing at 3 to 7 meters. Its crooked trunk bears fleshy, thick branches, and contains a sticky, milky sap. The bark is smooth and papery, while the wood is yellowish-white and soft. The leaves are alternate, oblong or oblanceolate, 20 to 40 centimeters long, pointed at both ends, and arranged in a spiral at the ends of the branches. The flowers are large, 5 to 6 centimeters long. They are white or purplish outside and pale yellow within. They are borne in compound peduncled cymes, usually when the tree is leafless. The fruit is of two follicles, cylindrical, pointed at the tip, 15 to 20 centimeters long, and 1.5 to 2 centimeters in diameter. The seeds are numerous and winged. [edit] Origin and distribution

Plumeria acuminata was introduced to the Philippines from Mexico by the Spaniards. It is now pantropic in distribution.
