|Thank y'all so much! We are very excited about them ourselves!|
Candy Stripe is incredible intense and holds her colors well! We enjoy her very much.
The most beautiful inflos we have had this year has been Ryan Chelsey. Her crowns are hardy and the first one started in May and is still blooming. She puts out a ton of flowers and when they are new they are an intense , pink shell...they are hardy petals and keep their shape well....my favorite pink of all. We ended up with 3, 4-5 ft cuttings and the stump. They are all doing well and the stump is getting knee high!
The cultivar is local, named by a grower named Emerson ( a very big PSA member and grower down here) he named it after his daughter...Chelsey.

|I have to correct you there. Emerson named it, but he collected it in the Florida Keys on one of his winter trips.|
And I think it was his granddaughter..... and her name is Ryann Chelsey.
Another piece of trivia about this cultivar: it has some of the largest leaves of any plumeria.

|OK, I assumed he grew it, since he named it...my bad...he told us it was his daughter that he named it after. The spelling he used on his metal tags from the plants we bought from him was spelled Ryan...I have seen the 2 "n"s used before (Ryann), but I assumed since it was his plant..Ryan was correct.|
I haven't noticed extra large leaves on that one....our deLuna gets leaves up to 30" which are the biggest ones we have.
