The one in my avatar is one I made this week. I stack-strung that one, but shortened the stems on the blooms so it was more full. It took about 75 blooms.

Gorgeous lei! We had a hedge of plumerias in Hawaii. I never appreciated them until I got home and realized they wouldn't grow here without extra care.

Good morning, DutchLady. I have taken a few more pics of the unknown Plumeria, and hopefully they will help ID the plant. The stem/leaves are very similar to my 'Celadine' and that is what I thought this plant was since it is planted amoung several 'Celadine' plants. However when it bloomed it was certainly not the 'Celadine'. The petals are apprxomimated 1 1/2" long, 3/4" wide, and some petals are ovate and some slightly pointed. The flowers have a slightly sweet fragrance, but nothing like the wondeful fragrance of my 'Celadine'. I would call the stripe along the back of each petal fuchsia rose and this color shows through on the top of the petal as a soft pink. The center of the flowers is bright yellow and the rest of the petals are pure white.Thumb of 2012-07-20/drdawg/305abf

Neat little insect on that last pic. What variety do I have?
