Seed was labelled Tomlinson when germinated

Hi

This is one of the few plumeria's where the label stayed intact with the seedling, This one was labeled Tomlinson and is opening for the 1st time, should be interesting to see how much it matchws its parent or not

Is is just the angle or does that bloom look like it's going to be really big? I'm anxious to see this one. Lot of seedlings blooming in the dead of winter it seems. I have a Thai seedling that I have had for 3 years that is close to opening, another week or so. It appears not to be white or yellow, at this point, but a little too early to tell. I'm anxious to see this one of yours.

Wow, that is a REALLY nice flower, I love it! The markings are very pretty and I really love the shape and overlap of the petals.

The 1st flower to bloom didnt have too much in the way of yellow, but as you can see some of the later flowers have opened up and the yellow is coming into its own, as for the frangrance it has a really strong crisp peach scent...

The only thing the plant has in common with Tomlinson (parents plants seed) are the shape of the petals

all in all this has to be the best of my seed grown project.......so far :)

Wow Congrats Jimmy! You have the beginnings of an awesome new variety! I cannot wait to see how the flower changes until it hits the 3rd bloom cycle. Then you will get to see the final product, and going by this flower, I bet it will truly be gorgeous!
