It's been a weird summer, with the plants taking their sweet time growing, due to the cooler, wet weather. Here is my progress with the plumies so far. Katie Moragne and Riviera Rainbow bloomed earlier this summer, and nothing from these plants except leaf growth since then.

Celadine has been blooming for some time now, 1-2 buds at a time.

This is either Grove Farm, or Daisy Wilcox, I'll have to see when the blooms open, the tags fell out of some of the plants when they were moved outside.

They look beautiful and healthy! My bet is for Daisy Wilcox since Grove Farm is quite a bit darker pink.

Thanks Hetty. Hopfully the blooms will open in the next few days, and I can put the tag back on the plant.

Here are DW? on the left, Celadine on the right, with white pudica behind both plants. The second picture is the 3 branched orange shade, and the 1 stem rainbow shade on the bench, with Jeanie Moragne, Samoan Fluff, and Yellow Jack (from left to right) behind the table. For some reason, YJ is really short, but full of branches drooping toward the ground;~(

The repotted plumeria on the ground, and the Hawaiian cuttings on the table on the left, with the BBB rooted plants on the right. The Hawaiian cuttings are taking their time putting out the leaves, but they have made progress recently since our daytime temps have been in the 80's, and we had several days of sunshine, untill this weekend, when we've had rain everyday. The BBB plants have also been relatively slow growers.

The Lei Plantation inflo has split into 2 brances. The pink pudica inflo is increasing, and yippeeee, I found an inflo on one of the recently repotted orange shade plants, you may need a microscope to see it!

You're right Hetty, Yellow Jack is the shortest of the mature plumeria that I have. It is so short, it fits under JM and SF, although all 3 of them are in the same size pots. I'm going to have to move it out from under the others for it to get more sun.

That will be important or it will get leggy and won't bloom.

Well, pink buds on the plumeria finally opened, it is Daisy Wilcox, and what a delightful scent!

As I was standing on the bench taking pictures of the open blooms of DW, I turned to the left and saw this Rolling on the floor laughing Thumb of 2013-09-05/Cem9165/4e7dc1
I could not believe it. I've turned the plant so that the inflo of Samoan Fluff is now more visible to me!

Poor Yellow Jack was being hidden under SF. It has 3 long brances, with branches coming from those. I hate to cut it but I may have to because of the weird growth habits. It is definitely a compact plumie compared to the others.

An interesting observation, I have noticed that the white pudica, which took the longest to grow leaves is now 3 times the size of the other plants, although they were all planted at the same time. Pink pudica is double the size of the orange shade plumeria next to it, also planted at the same time in 2011. The pudicas have thinner stems, and I love the shape of the leaves.

Samoan Fluff buds. It's amazing how fast these buds are maturing, since we've been having warmer weather.

My orange shade plumie has put up a nice fat bud. I don't know if the plants will be able to stay out side much longer. Our temps are really cooling down at night. It may have to go by the basement window to finish blooming.
