Vera Cruz Rose... I had to dig this up.. it was standing in water to close to the street and crowded by my purple boogies. ..so I have to figure out what to do with it...

Here is the same plant before all the rain.. it wasn't happy where it was... maybe that is why?

That looks a LOT like Hawaiian Rose to me!

I think you need to send it to me. It happens to be one of my 10 favorites! A very photogenic plumeria!
For comparison: Hawaiian Rose


Vera Cruz Rose

We got this as a stick from friends in Hawaii and I do believe you are correct. I agree I agree So I'm changing the list to Hawaiian Rose. It is a rich yellow, almost orange compared to most yellows. Thank you I tip my hat to you. ...

I will get you one in a box along with a chom poo pann. Smiling

One other note on the Hawaiian Rose the bloom petals are "meaty", thick. The smell is heavenly one of my favorite scents.

Exactly right on the substantial petals, Robert, and it is supposed to be a seedling of Vera Cruz Rose so maybe the confusion stems from there. And yes, a rich orange-yellow color. I cannot pass this one without taking a picture of it!

And - you are too kind....Thumb of 2012-07-15/Dutchlady1/684f81
