What is it? Newbie seeks answer 2 bittersweet mystery
What is is?
Well, I bought a nice 6-foot Jeannie Moragne on Craigslist several months ago, and I've been waiting patiently for it to bloom. It's right in the middle of yard, should make a great centerpiece.
Then it opened! What is it??
It's definitely not a Jeannie, and I'm really bummed about that (I'll have to shop for a large Jeannie to put there - it's a great location). But as upset as I am, this new flower is gorgeous! - 4 inches across, deep rose color, with crimson and magenta and slight purple - beautifully veined and strong wonderful scent.
Funny how disappointments with plumerias identities bring such mixed feelings! Does any one have any idea what I have? Unfortunately, my camera doesn't capture the deepness of the reds as much as I wish it would, but hopefully it can still be identified. If not, I may call it Simi Mystery and try to register it (although Another Craigslist Mystery might be a more accurate name!)
I've got others that need identifying (beautiful ones, too), but here's the first for the experts!
