This is the first bloom in 20 years. Long story short I got this NOID cutting from a dear friend who lived in Hawaii about 30 years ago. She has since passed and I can't get any information on it. (Nor do I think she would have remembered anyway) Hoping someone can help me ID this old tree.
Flowers have narrow, white petals with slight points on the end, yellow centers, smells divine but not strongly. Since this is basically a first flower and I get more inflo (if I get one) could the flowers be different the next time?

It's a beauty! Maybe @Dutchlady1 can also give her input to Ken's suggestion.

The flower shape is all wrong for Celadine, so I don't think that is it.
I am very hesitant to identify a plumeria from a single picture, unless it is a clear cut ID, in the case of something like Ammaron's Curly White or Madame Poni. But there are many white plumeria with yellow centers, and since it came from Hawaii 30 years ago it could be almost anything. Just enjoy your lovely bloom!

I am hoping the next inflo will give us more clues. I got 5 flowers off of the singe inflo. But it seems the inflo blooms one flower at a time and not a bouquet. And the flowers last. Sometimes up to 3-6 days. When the big wind topped over the tree last night, the bloom was not harmed and stayed intact. That is one strong flower! I am going to try to get a picture using a ladder. And yes I am enjoying the flowers. But more so my neighbor is. Being so tall, she sees it from her kitchen window.
