Lei is a polynesian garland.

The first time I got lei'd on was at the Garden Island Airport waiting area (baggage claim) by my friends. Words were not enough how magical it was to wear a lei. The flowers smelt so good and felt so cool around you neck.

Lei is often given or shared during graduation day, birthdays, weddings, and other occassions or if you will be visiting the Hawaiian Islands, you might get lei'd on by your friends.

<p>I live in Wisconsin and I was wondering how to get Plumeria Flowers. None of the garden centers or florist have them.</p>
Hi Michelle. <br>I don't know if plumerias grow in the mainland and where to find them. But there are companies on Hawaii that ship plumerias to the mainland. Try google search. I found one site but I did not verify it http://www.hawaiimagazine.com/blogs/hawaii_today/2010/6/25/how_to_mail_order_Hawaii_grown_plumeria_mainland
