    I think you know already we call them Franjipani down here?

    I saw an absolutely gorgeous, huge white and yellow flowering one at my hospital yesterday, but only had my camera phone and could not get a decent pic.

    That’d make a pretty decent shade of lipstick i think?

    Reckon it would suit me?? 😉

      Yes.. in Hawaii, too. That was where I first saw them and therefore the first identifier I had for them. My tree surprised me by springing into full bloom before I noticed it was coming. Thankfully the sun was just right to capture these and other photos. Also used a different plumeria photo from yesterday with my poem.

      Ah, there’s the rub. I’m allergic to the odor.. but for some reason my plumeria has no odor!! So strange. It was here–very small–when I moved in 18 years ago and I was thinking I’d have to cut it down, but so far I have never detected an odor…even close up. Lucky.

        How interesting that it has no aroma. I’m also quite sensitive to plumerias when they are too plentiful — can wear one pinned to my shirt, but not a lei of them. Maybe it’ has something to do with the color?

    I once tried to grow one, but gave up when it became just a stick — there are enough other flowers that do that! My hydrangeas have just greened out and have lots of buds, but they have been pretty twiggy for the last 3 or 4 months!
