99% sure that that is 'Lemon Chiffon'. It is good to always post a picture of the leaves as well, when you are trying to get an identification. They can be quite characteristic, as they are in this case.
I call the scent 'Lemon Meringue Pie' Smiling

That last picture has an interesting addition..... Blinking
Truly, Mike, I don't think that looks like Lemon Chiffon. For one thing, LC has a very distinct, sweet lemony scent that is quite strong. Secondly, it is quite a bit more yellow. Let me post a picture.

Thumb of 2012-05-05/Dutchlady1/d4e3f4

Now you very cleverly posted a picture of the leaves, and I find that LC often has 'bleached' splotches (small ones, like paint splatters) on the edge of some of the leaves. If you see that you can be pretty sure it is LC. Do you notice anything like that?

The flower on the right looks like it may be a common white.

i have not realy notices on the lc leaves but have to look tomarrow in day light.


yea the first pic i think the flower on the left is a LC and the unknown might just be a common white like you said im going to watch it for a while as it gets a bit more sun and see if its sent or flower changes but i said when i saw it NOPE not enough yellow and no sent! BUT I STILL LIKE IT FOR NOW. Now as my collection grows i might like it less Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Nothing 'common' about a common white, it's still a Plumeria Hilarious!
