so this could just be me over-reacting but one, just one of my beloved plumeria trees has yet to open a single leaf, its planted in the ground so I figured it would be slower to waking up, however we have had loads of heat, sun etc here in southern California and its actually blooming and has been blooming most of the summer. I've watered it only because with our mini heat wave it was actually starting to get that raisin effect like it was thirsty. has anyone experienced this? should i be concerned is there anything I can do to get some growth and leaves?
thanks for your help

Is this a well rooted plant? An unrooted stick will sometimes bloom, but not make leaves.

If tree is blooming all this time may be there is not much to worry about but this far into summers and no leaves is a little strange. May be you apply some good compost to the soil (I use composted black cow manure). Make sure to work it into the soil and then water it.Tree will appreciate it.It might just put out leaves because compost has small amount of Nitrogen and range of nutrients and it is mild enough not to harm plants.

Koa..check you plant very well for any rot..had two this
year doing the same thing blooming but no leafs and all other
plumie had tons of leafs.

On inspecting both plants better found they had
rot at the bottom close to the root system..had to cut them
back..both had been fully rooted for several years not
sure what went wrong with them.

thanks everyone for your help, i'm finally having some leaves open up, i think i may have had some issues going on w/ the roots as i tried to carefully dig around base of tree. i may have been over watering since the branches were getting that withered raisin look so i figured it was drying out but i hadn't had leaves yet so i was probably overwatering. anyways fingers crossed that it will push out as many leaves as possible now that its starting to get a little cooler. though usually i have plants blooming and with leaves for late spring thru middle of fall so we will see. also hoping for some sun and warm weather just a little longer =)

Probably was from the ground staying too wet or too dense. You have to ammend the soil adding pumice compost & I add peat to lighten it up. Hope it is Ok during the winter
as that is the real challenge when the temps are cool.
