Here are some more pics and info on this unknown Plumeria. The flowers are slightly fragrant, but not nearly as sweet as those of the 'Celadine'. The petals are white with a bright yellow center. There is a dark fuchsia-rose ribbon along the border of the backside of each petal and that shows through on the frontside of the petal as a light pink color. The petals are approximately 1 1/2" long and 3/4" wide and the terminal edge can be oval or slightly pointed. The leaves measure up to 23" long, are approximately 5" wide, and are dark green, similar to my 'Celadine' in coloration. In comparison, my 'Celadine' leaves measure 16" x 4". The main stem (trunk) is 2" thick and there are now three nice, plump tips growing from this 3' high central stem.

This unknown Plumeria is growing amoung 'Celadine' plants, so don't let the flowers and leaves of the 'Celadines' in the pics confuse you. What variety to Plumeria do I have?

Hetty, PlumeriaPatch thinks this unnamed plumeria is 'Vera Cruz Rose'. I think she may be right. It sure looks the same. Ken
