#2 Doesn't look like the photo's in the database of Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Kaneohe Sunburst')

And I'm not sure about #3 For comparison Dutchlady has a photo in the database of Maui Beauty: Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Maui Beauty')

Hard to figure the official names of Plumeria varieties. Not much info out there to go on.

Folks here call the plain white one with a yellow eye, and strong fragrance, 'Pua Malia'. It it considered choice for lei making!
