Now that is one fantastic plumeria! And she smells like a good perfume, too.

Hi Rox,
The unofficial name is Psycho. Not sure if anyone knows the registered name. If I have it right, Bill,s wife nicknamed it Psycho because of it's blooming pattern. Am I right Bill?

I have 2 rooted large Psycho in pots, and one that is a small cutting. Mine have bloomed during the winter months indoors, which is not impressive, but to see this huge tree still blooming outdoors is AMAZING! I think this tree does this almost every year!

Looks like it did when I was there in September. Thank you for my trees. They are all doing well. You are a great host and the tour was awesome. My husband and I both enjoyed our time visiting with you. Hopefully we'll see you again in the spring/summer of 2013. Have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Psycho is always going to be a "classic"

Always blooming on her own terms and not letting "mother Nature" tell her when to slow down!! LOL...


My Psycho has three seedpods!! YES!!!

Merry Christmas, Bill and Sherry!!!
