After four years of waiting my mystery plumeria has finally flowered and appears to be an Aztec Gold - it has a very distinctive strong peachy smell. Any better id's would be welcomed!

I am in East Sussex, UK and it has cost a fortune in heating and lighting but I have finally done it! And it was worth the wait!

Thats a great flower and definately looks like Aztec Gold and the strong peachy smell is a dead give away. Well done.
What other Plumeria do you have?

Thanks very much.

I have another large "mystery" plant which did have an inflo on it this year but then something (not quite sure what) happened to the plant about 6 weeks ago and all the leaves and the inflo fell off. It has since recovered and looks really healthy again which is rather annoying!

I have a Jan Ja Rad and Red Raca seedling which I have grown from seeds purchased from your website which seem to be doing ok so far.

Just waiting to see what you have available at the end of the month as I think, as I seem to have got the hang of it, another purchase may be in order!
