questions

I brought a frangipani (Plumeria) back from Hawaii last April when it was just a leafless branch. It sprouted leaves and grew over summer. Now it is losing its leaves. How can I keep it growing over winter? Will it bloom?

My lilac had a grayish blight on the leaves this summer. What caused this and how can I prevent it?

I am interested in improving fall color in my yard. What shrubs turns red beside burning bush (Euonymus alatus)?
