|Back in September 2008 I was given some pretty expensive plumerias that hadn't been cared for properly. It being so late in the year, I set out to graft as many as possible to seedlings to try to bring them back to health and survival.|
Some of the seedling tops that I cut off looked especially good, so I decided to use them for practice and graft them to my big white tree. Well, the first one bloomed today (at least I discovered it today).
I think the flower's kinda nice and I'm glad I didn't toss it. Oh, and the seedling sprouted in 2007.

|Talk about having your cake and eat it - you use the seedling to graft and then get to see the seedling bloom too.|
I think it has great promise. Like to see more pictures! How big, scent, growth habit?

|The flower's probably about 3". I can't get a scent from it. Can't say about the growth habit. The thing's only about 16" tall and hasn't branched yet. It was about the same diameter as the young branch I grafted it to at the time. Now it's a bit beefier.|
