WHat your favorite Orange plumeria, and why?

Andrew ScottMay 31, 2011

I am going to order Jungle Jack's orange. I found a picture of it a while back and I have wanted one ever since. Orange seems like a pretty rare color for plumerias.

I want to know what your favortie orange varieties are, and if you can either post a pic, or give me a link to the picture, I would really aprreciate it.

Not that I have any room for them, but I want to collect them. I may have to get rid of some of my least favorites here soon. I am keeping my fingers crossed that never happens!

Hi Dewaine,
Where did you find these 2 beauties? I like them both but OFCOURSE I DO! What are there growing habits like? Are both tall growers? Maybe I could get just one more? LOL! Are any from Jungle Jacks?

Hi Steven Wayne,
I actually have Kimo. There just seedlings. I got them from Jennifer. I need to get in touch with her to thank her. J105 I should have next week. Glad you like it. I am really excited about this order. I have actually only ordered from a plumeria nursery once this year. THe others that I have recieved/bought plumerias from have all had AWESOME cuttings and rooted plumerias.

In my collection I like 'Kimo' and, although it's probably not an official orange, my 'Penang Peach'. Of course for 'Penang', it's the warm weather that brings out the orange colors, otherwise it's more of a yellow in cooler weather. But that's probably the case with most oranges I would imagine?

Wow, Dave, that Kimo just pops! Went with your recommendation and got Penang Peach, with an inflo, and it has taken to this heat like a champ. It only dropped the most mature buds when I got it so there's still a decent inflo growing and a couple of beautiful blooms on it. Mine is definitely looking much more fuchsia than your photo, no peach at all to speak of, just a little yellow.

As an all-around Plumie, you just can't beat Penang Peach. It has a wonderful growth habit and blooms like crazy.

Hello Everyone,

With the help of one of my friends from Virginia...who loves the Mango Beauty as much as i do...

This is the thread that i first saw the pic of this awesome flower. I also love JJ's Orange just like Andrew, and i love the Inca as well..

Unfortunately it looks like Dewaines picture is not showing up anymore.. : ( I wanted you all to see this beautiful pic...

Bill, your Inca is gorgeous too!

Thanks for sharing this one with us..

Anyone else have a fav Orange? I still love the Penang Peach.. I certainly hope to see her bloom this summer for me. I did have an inflo bloom this winter under lights, but i am sure it would have more of an intense coloration than it did.. Im crossing my fingers!!!

Take care,

Hi Folks, here's a link to my Plumeria pictures. The Pua Noa I bought from Linda Ohara. She said she got it from her friend Noa. I suspect it's Uni Orange.

The Mango Beauty I got by helping a neighbor named John (hence John's RB), trim his tree. I had my pickup full of cuttings of which I gave most to friends. The flowers shape and color can change dramatically on this one depending on weather conditions, but they're always beautiful.

Hope everyone's plants are waking up nicely.

What a beautiful collection of pictures you have Dewaine. It would be hard to pic a favorite as they are all so gorgeous. It took awhile to go through them but the little girl (aka Kitty) is top of my list. What a cutie !!! Peg

Peg, thanks, and I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. Kirsten K. (Esther's Granddaughter) is the most beautiful, precocious, little girl you could ever hope to meet.

Laura,it's always my pleasure to have an opportunity to show off my little collection of plants. As I said, I gave away most of the truck load of cuttings of Mango Beauty that John gave me. I even took a trunk load to the SCPS meeting and passed them out. So there's no telling who has them by now. I was just calling them "John's Rainbow" back then. Sonia suggested "Mango Beauty" and it suits it very well I think.

I put a couple of my remaining cuttings in the ground last year and if they do as well as I expect, I'll most likely be able to share a piece with you this year. Wish I had kept more for myself now. :)

Hi Dewaine,

Sounds like those people at the SCPS were some lucky people!!! : )

That is one gorgeous tree !!!

Hopefully your trees will continue to grow and bloom like the pictures that you have posted in the past!! I;m sure you have a beautiful collection of trees in your yard.

Thank you for your response and i hope you have many blooms this summer!!

Take care,
