Transferring plumerias from pot to ground in over 110°F and high humidity?

Scorching humid summers over here in Bahrain from June up until the end of December. 

I want to plant my mid-sized plumeria trees into the ground but I fear they might die because shading the plants isn't possible. Some have told me I could plant it but without adding any soil mix or fertilizers, just horticultural sand.

Any thoughts on this...

    There are several ways to provide temporary shade for new plants in the ground. It may be unsightly, temporarily, but it's possible and rather common. Plumerias need soil that drains well, but if you just use sand you'd have to water them quite frequently.

    Nothing grows in the desert.  Leave your plumerias in the pot.
