It's not QUITE summer but this is peak season for plumeria in my part of the country and I intend to post a LOT of pictures so I decided to start a new thread!

This is Guadelupe Fernandez

The Australians have a funny way of naming their plumeria, or frangipani as they would say.
This is (ahem) 'White Pinwheel'
and this is 'Hazy Pink'

I so wish that dwarf forms of plumeria could be developed, like a dwarf Vera Cruz Rose, or the stunning Guadalupe Fernandez.... They're too tall for me to keep!

I agree, and like the way the blooms are lifted above the foliage for display i

They are all beautiful but GUADELUPE is simply breathtaking Lovey dubby How is the scent??? What is the approximate size of the flowers??? I am also a big fan of the plumeria that hold their inflos so high above the foliage!!! As you can guess, I am REALLY tempted by this variety!

Flowers are an average size and the scent is 'nice' without being outstanding. The beauty of it makes up for any shortcomings! It has definitely ended up in my top ten.

I'm not having much luck on plumeria blooms yet. My December Puu Kahea inflos are done for the year but got rewarded with 6 new branches.

The only new bloom is the Star-white, this one is fragrant:

I love your Star White ....wonder if it's related to my Oahu Star? I'm. so happy my OS survived her spring mishap, poor baby, she's now only 5 inches tall (cut down from a decent -sized cutting)..above the soil line, but putting out glossy claws & leaves, a real trooper, that one!
(Thanks, Hetty!)

Thumb of 2013-06-11/Dutchlady1/92ae4d
Plumeria stenopetala is one of my favorites. It blooms a long time and the scent of the unique, spidery flowers is out of this world. Therefore, I have three.
My latest one is this hanging basket version, it has just started to bloom. Florida Colors sells the small grafted plants and so you can easily do this yourself.Thumb of 2013-06-11/Dutchlady1/758118

I'm going to enlarge this photo, so I can admire it properly...:Nice job, Hetty. Does the basket provide enough root -room?
Ive decided to try to graft my steno -babies to a tall seedling, instead. 'Course, it may be a while, my steno -babies are only 2 inches tall!!!
