Today's Plumeria of the Day is Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Toba's Fire') .

Also sold under the name 'Embers', this is a fantastic vibrant variety. Please join in, if you own this plumeria! We would love to know more about how it performs in your area!



Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Yes, I saw the price of this in Exotic plumeria, but for less than half the price, I would go for the hot embers of Florida Colors Lovey dubby

Both Exotic Plumeria and Florida Colors sell exactly the same varieties (but smaller size cuttings) for two to three times what I do. I am terribly underpriced. Sighing! I have neither Toba's Fire or Embers. Are they the same plant with just different names?

Embers from Exotic Plumeria is the same as Toba's Fire. The owner of this nursery has an unfortunate habit of renaming already named cultivars.

Hot Embers from Florida Colors is a different variety.

Ken I'd like to see the price comparison you mention. I know Exotic Plumeria is overpriced but I don't believe Florida Colors is....

I will have to get back to you on that, Hetty. I am dealing with the concrete foundation for the Florian glass right now. I'm the "advisor". Whistling
