It is apparent that I have a plumeria mislabeled. It is labeled "Celadine" but it is not a Celadine. This plant would not be a seedling but would have been a cutting, probably purchased from Mike several years ago. The inflorescence stem is bright green whereas the Celadine's is red. The flowers are mostly yellow and about 50% larger than the Celadine flowers. The leaves are about the same length/color but are a bit more narrow than the Celadine. The fragrance is even stronger than the Celadine and I would say it might be peachy (but I'm terrible describing fragrances!).

I wonder if this is Aztec Gold? The problem is, I have never purchased that variety. Sticking tongue out What is its ID?
