Oh, this is my latest favorite! This is the first year that it bloomed for me and the following qualities are big pluses for me: fragrant (check); beautiful unique color (check); good flower quality (check); and boquet bloom (check).

Hi, I'm newly addicted to Plumeria Smiling I have a couple cuttings rooting (hopefully...), just found some plants at my local OSH (w00t), and I have some Siam Lavender seeds sprouting! I may only get one or two from the 6 seeds I bought, fingers crossed.

I'll check back on this thread in 3-5 years if I get blooms :)

Welcome! JC! That is very exciting! You could have beautiful new variety in 3 to 4 years!

I know! Kinda hoping it looks like the parent, though :)

edit: only got one sprout from 6 seeds, have to keep this one going! Just potted it today. How long before it can take full sun all the time?
