O.M.G....look what I got yesterday!!!!!!!!!! SWOON!!!
Here's a picture of the whole plumie, still rooting / leafing.
I have a bunch of Kimo seedlings. Hope I get something close to those. Beautiful colors.
I just love the intense colors of your Kimo!!
Reminds me of Paradise... : )
Congratulations!! I know you are so happy!!
Oh wow! I love the colors and the shape! How exciting. Another one to add to my wish list.
Congrats! I can't wait for mine to have an inflo. What's it smell like??
Emily, It's a real beauty !!! Congrats !!! Peg
That color is so soothing! Gorgeous...
that is what heat and humidity do. Mine never looked that colorful. Nice flower.
Enjoy this Kimo Plumeria! They become very heavy bloomers!
The hotter the summer the deeper the colors! They also seem to be more resistant to rust common in plumerias.
I just love those blooms. Enjoy them!
Great! I have 1 on the way. I second the question, what does it smell like? Beautiful photos, by the way!
Thanks so much for the nice comments everyone!!! I wasn't really expecting it to open but within a day it was fully blooming. The flower is probably 2.5" across - and would you believe I got so excited I forgot to even smell it!!! I will have to smell it and report back - I think I have another bloom waiting to open so I'll smell that one when it first opens up, too.
Nice work Emily She is everything I love. I bought a rooted one from Matt. Waiting for an inflo. I am sooo jealous
I want a Kimo now. I have been looking for this one, I have bid on a couple but always lose to someone else. I guess the easiest way is to just buy it from someone. LOL, no luck with ebay.
Minderella, the way I won mine on ebay is, I bidded on one that didn't have an inflo because when it does, people bid like crazy for them.
Nice, Emily! Always so exciting to see them open, especially when rooting.
And now look at some of the Kimo blooms that have opened and faded - it's like having multiple plants in one!!! I love it!!!
Congrats! What a beauty! Fabulous colors :)
I love my Kimo. It's a good bloomer and is probably a medium grower. The blooms change color depending on the weather temps. The blooms are held up high on the inflos so they show up, and are not buried in the new leaves.
That is an absolutely beautiful bloom. Congratulations. Isn't it exciting to go outside and see them bloom. They are like beacons that just draw you to them and you have to just stand there and admire them. And your Kimo is defintely to be admired. Great job!!!
I picked up a nice size Kimo last week and now can't wait to see them blooms. I hope mine has such wonderful color!
Love to hear they like heat and humidity lol!
Thank you so much for the nice comments everyone!
Nicole, the blooms seem to keep changing every time I look at them, but never disappoint!
Dave, I agree, it's given a lot already and I haven't even had it that long! The flowers on this inflo are small but powerful. I'd say no more than 2", is that about what your blooms are? Glad to hear it's a medium grower and I see why everyone loves this variety.
Joanr, it really is like a little beacon! I'm just engrossed in each and every bloom!
beachplant, you won't be disappointed, especially if you get good heat and humidity - it should really help get that range of colors for you!
They do also have a scent, but I'm really bad at describing scents!!! Maybe a little spicy???! I don't know!
Kudos, Emily! Perfection.
I can't believe I gave mine to my mother in law!! Loving the photos, beautiful.
