Well being the sucker that I am for any posting that I come across for 'one of the best smelling plumerias ever!' I broke down and ordered 4222 today. Laugh.
Anyone growing this beauty?
Your thoughts on its scent?
Here's what I've gleaned from various sites about its scent-
#4222 from Thailand. This one is fascinating. It HAS to be a seedling of Pink Pansy--just has to be. The scent is identical to Magnum Opus too, that sort of gardenia plus something else I can't put my finger on... very fragrant. I put my last PP bloom next to the inflo for comparison. #4222 is much more ruffled and overlapped, and is starting to form tight bunches of flowers exactly like my Thai seller's picture. A true winner!
I have to say next to my local variety "Cotton Candy" this plumie smells like sweet, sweet perfume.
What a smell and she's taken over the Green House with it.
She reminds me why I go through all the hard work and research on these wonderful plants.
This would make a great lei flower WOW!
I will stand by my statements I made a few years ago this is one of the best smelling Plumerias out there hands down!!
Her fragrance is a strong perfume smell which I really can't compare it to anything but a heavenly women's perfume.
Yes, the fragrance is out of this world.
Yes 4222 has good fragrance, just brought it in for my wife to take a whiff and tell me what it smells like, and she says no fragrance right now in 98' heat . But in the morning or at night yes.
