my plumie, all the flowers blew off in a wind storm yesterday, but it looks like it will bloom again. Smells sweet and citrusy.
Robert, I think it is a Celadine. The color, the smell match up perfect. My other plumie isn't a cutting, its an original, and it smells like sweet coconut. When it gets a little bigger I will try to root you a piece of the coconut one.

Well those are just beautiful, as beautiful as the person who posted them....Thank you so much..

They MUST smell heavenly! I love that Duke Jasmine...Wow
And those Plumieria...Wow


RE: Blooming now

Those are gorgeous, Butterfly!

I just might have to cut some Grand Duke blooms myself. :)

My Mexican hydrangea (Clerodendrum bungei) still hasn't bloomed but is about 3ft tall or so.
Maybe I should give it more sun? It should bloom next year though.

Yay for plumies!
Love coconut scented ones.
I have to confess that I maimed my Fuzzy's Red Rose with the hose the other day. Wasn't paying attention and managed to snap two branches off. :(
Guess I'm pretty clumsy with the hose since last year I snapped a large branch off my Chinese Perfume Plant. Laugh.


RE: Blooming now

Butterfly..I was wondering....What is the name of the one that smells like cocnut? I have been wanting one forever and can't seem to find any....


Hello Robert! :L-)

RE: Blooming now

The coconut smelling plumie is an original, grown from seed, not a branch cutting, don't know the name.
It was bought from a nursery and labeled hybrid, but I noticed that it looked different than the other plumies they were selling, the trunk looked different, not a cutting that was rooted. It also costs twice the price, took 2 years to bloom, it finally bloomed last fall.
It hasn't bloomed this year yet either, I think it has outgrown it's pot, so I dug a hole and stuck the pot in the ground.
It might bloom this year yet, mabey it likes the cool weather to bloom.
