My pink plumeria has bloomed it's little heart out, but nary a bloom on the yellow one. And I totally agree that this was a BAD brug year ...... the worst I have ever had. Mine have bloomed but not the normal flushes I usually have. Some of the inground ones have not even "Y'd" yet, so of course they haven't bloomed. Such a strange year for me.

Hey Carrie,My Plumeria is about 3ft. tall and looks healthy,but no blooms on that one either. My Banana tree has done very well in this heat.
