Hetty, please explain the differences in the obtusa and the rubra plumeria. If you crossed an obtusa with a rubra, what would it then be?

I don't have gray hair, I have wisdom-highlights. I must be very wise.

Plumeria rubra and Plumeria obtusa are different species of the genus Plumeria.
If you crossed them, the offspring would be called Plumeria obtusa x rubra.
