Wow! I have some serious Plumeria envy going on! Where do you buy them? I can't even pick a favorite since they're all gorgeous.

Glenn, you got some real beauties there. I have the Samoan Fluff, but for some reason have not had luck with blooms. It has grown so tall am going to have to search a new place for in it the greenhouse before I move it back indoors.

Wait. What constitutes an "addict"? 12-20-120 trees?? Two of everything? No such thing as long as different varieties exists!

I just really hope you didn't pay a fortune for this one. A seller in Central Florida has taken an existing (and registered) cultivar and renamed it and charges a LOT of money under that name.... Thumbs down

@BBQNBLUES @Dutchlady1

We have a similar looking one here in Mexico called "Alice". (not named by me) I think I got one. Need to wait till it blooms.
Could it be the same one?

Oohing and aahing over everything on this thread
Happy to consider trading plants, but ONLY with other people who also live in FLORIDA due to Federal Agriculture Laws

@kbuntu - it could well be the same. But I hesitate to put that name on it without seeing it in person. Maybe you can make a note that it MIGHT be Barbados Showgirl.

@Dutchlady1 - It comes from Veracruz, Mexico. I will make a note and perhaps we can compare it in the future.
