I have to admit, I've been rather neglectful with my plants this summer. We've been getting a lot if rain, but not excessive enough to cause problems from the plants being too moist. I've barely had to water my plants until recently.

They did get fertilized, maybe twice with a tbs of Miracle Grow and a tbs of Greenlight Bloom Booster per 2 gallons of water.

Despite this, I've been fortunate to get some blooms. I was outside watering and didn't realize until then that several of the plants were blooming. The Orange Shade, Rainbow Shade, and Pink pudica were grown from cuttings from a co-op in 2011.

Not pictured are Jeanie Moragne which bloomed earlier this summer, and Vishanu Gold, that's been blooming, but I can never seem to catch it with an open bloom.

Thanks Ken😁

Even the DH walked outside, and stated in a surprised tone "are those blooms on your plants!?", after I started moving the plants around too get a better look at them.

We've been gone a lot this summer, and haven't been spending a lot of time outside. I'm just glad to finally see some blooms from some of the cuttings that I've been growing for the past 3 years.

Dusk added an interesting color-shift to your flowers.

Ken I agree, the colors are more muted at dusk. Here are the blooms this afternoon, taken on an overcast day. The colors are more vibrant, and I noticed the older blooms on the rainbow shade are darker. All the blooms have a wonderful scent.

With changes of lighting, one can make plumeria flowers almost any color they wish. Sticking tongue out I am sure that's why it is so difficult identifying a NOID only from pictures of its flowers.

I'm so happy and envious with your blooms Annette, they are gorgeous. Lovey dubby Glad to see plumeria blooms this time of year. I have no new blooms or inflo in sight. J23, Hausten White and Dwarf Pink Singapore are the only ones with multiple blooms now. We have a lot of rains lately so that does not help with my hopes for more blooms.

I have been neglectful this year too. Even my late blooming plumerias are not showing any inflos at all. I have Vishanu Gold, but I've never seen any bloom on it. It just started branching out.

Annette, I am going out on a limb here but I think your 'orange shade' might be Penang Peach. Please run your finger under the edge of the leaf at the tip, there should be quite a discernible hook at the tip, if it is indeed PP.
Penang Peach is quite desirable and a very compact grower.

Thanks Gigi, I'm glad to be getting some blooms before our cold weather sets in. The DH gave me a cutting of Vishanu Gold for my birthday in 2011. It 1st bloomed for me in 2012, but did not bloom last year. The inflorescence started before the plant went dormant last year, and its has been blooming intermittently all summer, but I keep missing the open blooms.

Hetty, I was intrigued by your post, and just went outside to check the Orange Shade, (in my jammies, and its drizzling, the neighbors must think I'm crazy) and you are correct, the end of the leaf does have a distinctive hook! THANK YOU I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. for identifying this plant. I'm thrilled to have a name. I'll label it tomorrow.


I'm hopeful that next year I'll see some blooms from my named cuttings, that I started last year from Brad's Buds and Blooms. They have done well, and will be due to be repotted next spring. Here are the names below, has anyone ever grown these?

Amber
Rainbow Starburst--aka Leela
Giant Aussie Orange
Puu Kahea
Star Dust

Thanks Hetty, and thanks for posting the picture of Puu Kahea, it's gorgeous, I can't wait to see mine bloom.

Tara, thank you, and I should neglect the plants more often☺️ It wasn't done purposely, we've been traveling a lot with my son this summer, then he went off to college , and we've been going to see him a lot. It doesn't leave much time for gardening.

Great Gigi, we have some of the same plants. When did you start your cuttings? Please post pictures when they bloom.

I'll be transplanting my BBB plants next spring. They've had some niece growth this summer.
