Does anyone know what kind of plumeria this is? I can't find it in the database. I've only ever heard it called Princess Pink by my neighbor who originally gifted me the cutting from her mature tree.

It's very nice. If the blooms are on the large side and quite fragrant (smell of baby powder) it could be Cancun Pink aka Peggy Higdon. However, I hesitate to make identifications based on just pictures. I would just enjoy it as 'Princess Pink'; it could even be a seedling and therefore its own, unique variety.

It is extremely fragrant, but doesn't smell of baby powder. It's almost like a mix between Jasmine and Rose scents. When multiple flowers are in bloom you can smell it from a distance. The flowers are actually fairly small/average sized. It very well could be a hybrid of sorts. She said she was given the plant years ago in the form of seeds and has been growing in her yard for about 10 years.
