After comparing this photo to the plant database, I THINK it's Caledine, but the leaf configuration is a bit different.

What do you guys think?

You might compare it to the one in our database; it looks very similar to me, Mike.

Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Celadine')

Maybe @dutchlady1 will stop by and tell us for sure.

A very good possibility of being Celadine. The Celadine leaf is quite distinctive so maybe you can post a closeup picture?

I hope these will help. Any closer and it gets difficult for the iPhone to focus.

And while we're at it...what is the correct pronounciation of "Caledine"?

The correct spelling is 'Celadine' and since I'm not a grower of plumerias I'm only going to guess that it's pronounced 'sel - a - deen', but @dutchlady1 can correct me if this is wrong.

And your photos do seem to be a match to the image that you'll see in our database, the link that I gave you in my earlier post. It's a beautiful plant!

sell-a-deen is correct. Thumbs up

The picture of the leaf is not conclusive....
