First bloom on this one for us. It is from Hawaii. The bloom is pretty big. Any thoughts on ID?

Nice. Reminds me of Puu Kahea.

I agree it looks like Puu Kahea. I love mine, if you go back to the Plumeria 2015 thread, or to the database, I posted pics similar to your blooms.

Thanks for the info guys. It does look like Puu Kahea. I have two more no ID's with inflows that are getting ready to pop as well. Can't wait till they do!

I occasionally have lost labels and have to wait for the blooms to see what the varieties are . Since I know what I have (other than the seedlings and those that will be labeled "Mendy's #1 - #9) and have pictures of those 8-10 varieties' flowers, I can easily get the correct label on those as they bloom.

I want to see if my Celadine var. will show those huge, yellow flowers again this summer.

I have never had a Puu Kahea but do like those flowers. Thumbs up
