I got another plumeria cutting (please see photo). The seller doesn't know its name. I searched online and found that its flowers look like those of California Sunset and Penang Peach. Do you have any idea?
I does look an awful lot like CA Sunset. ID'ing from looks alone is really hard because of how the flowers can change.
Hello, Penang peaches have a sharp point at the very tip of it leaves. If you feel a pin like apparatus at the tip....it's a peach.
HHHMMM...I read this and ran out to feel the leaf on my Ca. sunset from JJ this season at Lowe's...and...a pointy thing I have never felt on any other plumeria leaf. So, what do I have then? Label is on and everything and whatever it is, I love it. It is still sending out large great smelling blooms. roxanne
HI Nguy. I can see the hooked tips on the leaves of your plant, which is, as Peg mentioned, characteristic of penang peach. Cali Sunset is actually a PP seedling, so yes, Rox, it would have the hooked tips.
Many Mahalos Moonie....(actually fun to say that) roxanne
Hi Guys and Gals!!!
I had a few blooms left on my Penang Peach and I thought I would post what Purdee was talking about...
Hope everyone is doing well!!!
Nguy... Your blooms are gorgeous!! What ever you have, it sure is a beauty!!! I wish I could identify , but it is so difficult.. I have one that I need help with too!!! ;-)

The hooked tip is a characteristic of many of Penang Peach's offspring, like CA Sunset. CA Sunset looks so like PP that it's sometimes hard to tell them apart. Whatever you have, it's good!
Hmmm, I must have dreamed that Peg posted on this thread. lol
Moonie_57 is correct. My plant doesn't have a sharp point at the tip of its leaves (that why I took the pic with leaves and flowers so you can ID). Last week, I smelled some of the flowers which have opened for several days and cannot tell their kind of fragrance. This morning I smelled the flowers which just opens a little bit, it smells like a strong peach fragrance. So I think it could be Penang Peach. Do you guy know the fragrance of CA Sunset?
Thank you for all your replies.
Here is a photo of my California Sunset from JJ this April. Great smell. roxanne
And then here is a close up of the pointy leaf thingy....that was talked about. roxanne
You were dreaming Moonie as I don't have a PP or a CS. Thanks for thinking of me though. :) Peg
Peg (pcput), you don't have a Penang Peach???
Let me know, I have a few cuttings.
