Hello plumi friends.

Just saw this one in the wild. Of course I took some cuttings. Does anybody have a possible ID?

I haven't the slightest, but it is beautiful.

I was in Florida not long ago and think I saw that one but I didn't get an ID. It might have been at the botanical garden in Naples. Maybe Hetty will know it. @Dutchlady1

That is a beauty to be out in the wild. I guess Mexico must have some really great plants going native.

They are around but you really have to look for them. This one smells exactly like the pink one we have here & the keeping quality is one day.

It's too bad that the bloom time is that short. Wish we could bottle the scent! I've had plumeria perfume before, but it was nasty and not like real plumerias.

The flowers fall off very very quick. I would say the same day you cut them. Regardless, the color & scent is amazing and I think even more in the evening hours. It's a keeper. Thumbs up

I've noticed higher temps seem to make plumeria and hibiscus flowers drop after a day. When I get them to bloom in cooler temps they will last 2 or even 3 days. Maybe Mexico and Florida temps make them drop faster.

This is exactly why I slide my potted plumeria (my Adenium too actually) into partial shade when they bloom, because they last longer and seem to hold a better fragrance. Of course, we bake in the summers with vey intense sun and oftentimes 100° weather.

Yes, James, Adenium is right in there too. Keeping them shaded makes the blooms last so much longer. I'm almost ready to take my Adeniums out for the summer. I think another week will be safe to put them out. I can't wait to see them leafed out and blooming again instead of sad little sticks.

Lots of flowers soon, James! They look good. I can't wait for mine to start growing again. They've had very little water all winter, and they still feel solid.

I have some white ones and they have been blooming since the middle of February. Full sun, baking heat. Just amazing. I personally think it depends on the specie. If you look through Florida Colors it shows you the keeping quality of most of the species.

Anybody know which moragne this one is. It's grafted and supposedly the hardest one to root. But the tag and my memory were lost.

I was hoping you would know.
I'm starting to think it may be moragne 78 ? After some research...

Whereas it does have a certain resemblance, it is impossible to identify a flower from just one picture, unless it is a very distinctive one. For me that is not the case here.
