Christopher, did you learn the name the Filipinos have given to this tree?

Unfortunately, no...this particular one was a huge tree on a property next to an amusement park. I had to zoom in to get the flowers.

We filipinos call plumerias as "kalachuchi". It's very common in the Philippines... but I also started growing them here in California as well... :-)

Yes, calachuchi. I saw trees about 25 feet tall in the Philippines.

Thanks for your nice comments as always, Laura. I did post more photos on the Cacti and Succulent Forum, though I know you don't go over to 'the other side' very often.

Thanks, my friend. I just pay no mind to the rude ones, Laura. Politeness and manners matter a lot to me, I have no time for those who think otherwise.

I'm just saying, take a walk on the thorny side, if you dare.
