The most commonly seen yellow plumeria in South Florida. It tends to be somewhat lanky and the branches have a tendency to bend a lot, but the wonderful peach fragrance of the sunny blooms can't be beat!

I received 3 Y'd cuttings in late July, 2015 and stuck them August 1st. They rooted quickly in the warm weather and promptly set inflos. One plant has been blooming for about a month now and both of the other plants have inflos ready to open. They are a very cheerful color with a pleasant, not overpowering, fragrance.

Early bloomer and the flowers really do smell like peaches.
