Glad to see that your trees are responding to the California sunshine...are the "gloom" days finally over?

Wow. The "cooktown sunset" is real nice. Hope we hold on to our blooms as long as we can before it turns cold. Have a great holiday weekend.

Wow, your flowers are beautiful! I'm also in southern CA (Laguna Hills), just started growing plumerias, and noticed that the last couple of weeks my plumeria flowers started looking a lot better (more pronounced colors). I hope this warm weather lasts a little longer!

Hi Bill,

Plumerias are looking GREAT! Not getting enough heat in HB this year to get the colors. Everything is so late. Would love to swing by and check out the yard. Haven't been there in a couple of years.

Hey Bill
How does the Mele Pa Bowman smell. I've been wanting an evergreen but I've heard the singapore is prone to black tip.

Chimaan- MPB has a soft sweet smell, not spectacular but pleasant. Singapore is very sensitive to cold and black tip whereas the MPG is a bit more hardy. I have the dwarf pink too but it does not impress me at all.
Alex- I really have always like Cooktown Sunset too, but it is a floppy grower and needs to be staked well. It is much more intense in hot, humid weather:

Love to see your booms! Is there any way I can figure out the names/colors of my plumies? Many that I have are from a local grower and did not have their colors named. One I have, I think is "playful", but not too sure. I have at least 4 Singapore Whites as well. I love their look and the smell!

You cannot for sure identify a plumeria by a photo because seedling often look like registered varieties but are not. Only cuttings from registered varieties are really copies. That being said, you can go to growers catalogues like exotic plumerias in Florida, mauiplumeriagardens, aloha plumerias, florida colors, and others and look for similar flowers. Also the plumeria society of America has a flower section and several societies do to. Just say it is probably a xyz and don't sell cuttings as xyz because there is way too many people selling wrong cuttings under wrong names. Even some of these growers and sections have incorrect data. I have bought dozens of wrong plants some from some of the top growers. Mistakes happen, but it takes 3-4 years until you realize it is wrong.

Bill, tell about the 'Divine'. Does it have a fragrance? How has it done for you overall? I'm trying to root a cutting right now. I need compact growers!

Dave- I do not get much scent from divine. It is compact and a good bloomer. Mine is young but is flowering fairly heavily. I lost one of the three branches and am rooting it now, but the other two are doing fine. I think it is a very good dwarf but overall I am still not sure.
