This seedling was germinated in January, 2014. The seed-pod parent is Volare. It formed three tips fairly quickly. Those three tips (branches) are now 3-4' tall. One branch has remained a single. One branch now has grown two additional tips and the other branch has grown four additional tips. The two multi-tipped branches have inflo. The inflo began forming in July, 2015 and were in bloom September, 2015. It is now January, 2016, and both inflo are still blooming. The fragrance is floral/rose with a hint of baby powder.

This plumeria has not been registered with the PSA.
