Your color is just (a little bit) off, Ive. Here is mine in bloom but the picture was made in full sun. The flowers are actually much more rich burgundy than this. I have a couple of these plants in bloom and I need to see if I can get a "truer" picture tomorrow while its cloudy.

That's beautiful Ken, but different zone might have different coloration, even on a true red like Scott Pratt.

Per my experience most plumeria colors (except white and yellow) changes color even on the same plant or inflo depending on the sun exposure / weather conditions.

That's why I try to post more than 1 flower bloom in the database to show the variation of color of the same plant/variety.

I have plenty of flowers now. It is chilly and cloudy here and has been since Friday. Though I had been in College Station, TX Friday till Sunday afternoon, my wife says it never got out of the 60's during those three days and a damp north wind made it feel even colder. I have a lot of plants to ship today but perhaps the sun will pop out and I can take some photos tomorrow.
