It looks a little pink in the pic, but is red. The trunk/branches itself are skinnier than my other plumies. Any thoughts on ID?

Hmmm the bloom is similar to my Trimark to me (pinwheel blooms). What is the leaf like?

Here is a baby plant that bloomed recently for me.

I can never keep a rooted cutting of this, my friends want this all the time. I'm paying forward because it was given to me too.

Here are a few more pics of the plant. The leaf had red trim around the edge if that helps.

This last picture of your bloom is much more different, more red and really beautiful. I also can't see the top of the flower so it is hard to tell if the flower pattern is the same.

Maybe similar to Trimark but not the same.I will take a picture of the leaves over the week-end.

So pretty!! My DD was attracted to the thinner petaled flowers while choosing her first plumeria.

The lighting was bright on the first pic I posted. Here are a couple more. When the flower first opens it is red, and then fades to pink.

Sorry, this is for Hetty the expert. Looking at it closely now, it doesn't look it is not a Trimark.

This is definitely a gorgeous variety Ken. Lovey dubby And the little kid on the background is cute too.

Like Cheryl's DD i love the pinwheel look petals.

It's most likely a variety that does the rounds as 'Rainbow Starburst' or also 'Pinwheel Rainbow'. I have several, most of them bought under different names grrrr.

Gigi, if I am the "Ken" you refer to, I am not "waterdawg19". I am "drdawg". I guess waterdawg could be Ken though. Shrug!

Ooopss Ken you are right. @waterdawg19, sorry I kept calling you Ken. I am so used to chatting with drdawg.

Hetty good to know about Rainbow Starburst and Pinwheel Rainbow. I've always wondered if these 2 are related and was always toying with the idea of getting one because I love the pinwheel petals.

With Trimark it is easy to know you have it because it is the only plumeria I have that the color changes almost everyday. One day the buds will open as deep red, other days pastel color/orangey and sometimes hot pink. The best one is when all three colors are in one bloom. It is a truly pretty sight.

Dutchlady1, it does look like the Pinwheel rainbow. Thanks for the input.

GigiPlumeria, the little one in the background is my son. He loves going around and smelling the flowers almost as much as watering the plants with his watering can.

Can you take a shot at these Dutchlady1?

The pics are actually different plants. One seems to consistently have more yellow than the other. However, they are both very fragrant.

They appear to be a generic white and yellow. Lovely blooms, and yes, the white and yellow ones are often the most fragrant.
