Well whatever that red one is I am sure I want it back LOL. VERY beautiful. I'm leaning towards Malaysian Red but need to see it when it has developed a bit further.

And not sure what has gotten into those center cuttings... something is obviously not right with them. Keep me posted.

No. 1 sure looks like it could be Riviera RB - does it have a spicy scent? It's quite distinctive.
The Mexican white is lovely.
95% certain on the Celadine.

I should recognize the bottom one since the center with the two points in the yellow is distinctive but my brain is not yet working . . . *Blush*

I was 99% about Riviera RB and yes spicy cent the flower is also very sturdy. I am so happy with this i have quite a few of them but in awe with it i have to say one of the best i have so far!!!!

I also think the other is Celadine it came from you last year i had in small pot and it rooted but like no growth when i re-potted it took off and it was a fat cutting and i think we talked about it and you said it normally is a easy rooter and it was just i think starved for water so didn't put leaves out. But i know you Don't sell me noids.

thanks for info

i think Denise told me but i think we both where confused nodding and i was looking for red flowers .... Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing imagine my surprise when it bloomed
like it just confused but that is fully expected for me at this time for sure lol

The top photo is the Riviera Rainbow. The 2nd is of an unknown Plumeria, five petals, 1 1/2" ovate, white with a small yellow center, and slight tinge of pink along the edges. The 3rd is the backside of the unknown variety. There is a distinct dark reddish-pink stripe down the entire (one) side of each petal leading to the stem. What do I have? The last pic is my Celadine. Notice it has six petals, though no one can tell me why there are six rather than five. Thanks for the info.

Any plumeria can have six petals from time to time.

I have no idea what your unknown is.

Thanks for the reply, Dutchlady1. Perhaps someone will come up with a name. Is there somewhere else I should post my ID question for better results? Ken

There is a plant identification forum, but frankly, the flower is not distinctive enough in my opinion, so it would be hard to get a firm id on it.

Generally one only sees the top of the petal in pictures, not the rear of it. Do many Plumeria have this candy-pink stripe along the single outer edge of the rear of each petal? Again, thanks for your reply.

P. S. Would better pics help? I took these in noon sun and the brightness tended to wash the subtle colors and pretty much everything else.

Yes, there are many plumeria with the stripe along the back of the petals. Here is a good example. And absolutely, yes, take some pictures around dusk and that will give a better idea of the color.Thumb of 2012-07-19/Dutchlady1/c52279

Ken
In My experience if Hetty cant ID it then anyone else most likely is guessing she knows what 90% look like and i always find it help full to take front .back. full open and closed bloom with inflo colors AND a good pic of leaves font and back giving your hand or ruler to show size

the tip of photo at dusk or very late day is a great one you get more true colors then and if you can turn you flash off try that the flash washes out a great deal of color.

just my option Shrug! Shrug!
