If you want to take pictures of your flowers, do it just before sunset to get the color just right. In bright sun the color bleaches out.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is that the Scott Pratt is the ultimate historical plumeria variety in America. It was the first plumeria registered by the PSA. Enough history. This plant is a vigorous grower, a great bloomer, and (for a red) is easy to root.
