Look at the two flower-stalks. I can't be sure until the other buds begin to open, but it looks like I am going to have two completely different flower colors on this plant. This is the first time blooming. We discussed color-shift/splash petals, but what would you call this?

I can't tell, Cheryl, but does each stem have different flower colors (but all the flowers are the same on each stem)? Are they all in bloom at (relatively) the same time?

I edited my photos to give a time line. Educate me. I am not sure what stem vs stalk is. All the flowers come up from one stalk. The stalk has 5 stems. Each stem has inflo sets. The inflo bloom at different times. In the last picture are three flowers on two different stems that bloomed on Saturday. There is another stem nearby with 2 more flowers all bloomed on Saturday.

I use the term "stalk" to indicate the primary inflo-stem from the branch. As you pointed out, there can then be several stems growing from that single stalk. I have some multi-branched/tipped plants with a stalk on more than one branch. It appears (thanks for the time-line) that each of your flower forms/colors are blooming at distinctly different times. I guess that could be simply related to heat/sun, but I sure don't know. My thinking is that if I am seeing splash-petals, what's so different in seeing different forms and colored flowers on the same plant. I simply don't see the distinction. I guess we can all agree that what you have on your plant has nothing to do with a virus, right?

You're talking over my head again Dr. Master Gardener. I don't know what splash color is. D'Oh! I also just learned about viruses so I don't know how to tell if the plant has one?

This has been my oddest tree. I got it in Texas, Corpus Christi, TX. It hardly goes dormant and is the first to bloom. Every year it is a slightly different color than the previous year. This is the first year that it has bloomed so long and with so many colors. In fact, you thought it might be a celedine but it turns out it is not. So maybe a virus? Shrug! It is not a fast growing tree and has an odd 2/split branch-shape that makes it grow wide. I like her!! Lovey dubby

Forget that you ever heard the word "virus". It is highly unlikely you'll ever see the affects in your plumeria.

I like her too, Cheryl.

Here is a bit of splash on a Slaughter Pink. The splash is the darker coloration. These petals are normally pink, changing to mostly white over a 24 hr. period. Plumeria don't have strong color genes, thus all the colors we see on the same plant.

A named seedling, Gigi. Basically, one-of-a-kind and named for my good friend who lives on the MS Gulf Coast. She loves tropical plants as much as I, so I decided to name a series of seedling after her (that's the MM's). When I told her what I was doing she literally broke down crying. She said that this was an unbelievable kindness. There are now three plants in the series, the Pizazz, the Soft Pink, and the Pinwheel. Of course I also have Kathryn's Fuchsia Fantasy and DD's Delight. These two were my first seedling to bloom.........ever, and they are special plants to me. Heck, all my seedling as special to me and the names simply reinforce their dearness.

I know what you mean about how special the first seedlings that bloomed. I know have 6 seedlings in bloom but the special one for me is the Stardust seedling so far. Have not named any yet, I will run out of names and if we move soon it will break my heart not to see the blooms now that buds are forming on other seedlings too.

I think my heart might break too, Gigi. My plants become my children, some more loved than others, but I am their sole caretaker and I take pride in growing them. Only because I am retired can I do what I do. It would be so much easier to grow what I love, living down your way, but that's just not in the cards, at least not yet.
