cali_gal,
Beautiful! The colors are really crisp and distinctive. The white w/yellow center is so classic, one of my favorites.

Keep up the good work.

Bill, Sean and Rick thank you !! The only thing about the scent that I can recognize is maybe a rose smell. Im just so thrilled to actually have a plumeria blooming !! I just hope that this year my own will throw out some inflos and bloom for me. (I don't count "pregnant" cuttings) I have an inflo on a seedling Ive had for 5 years now... woo hoo !! This will be "my" first to bloom. Im anxious to see what I get. It was from a white w/yellow throat... Im hoping for some color !! But Ill take what I can get.

Cali, she's really pretty, the intense white and yellow is very eye catching, and she smells like roses-divine!! Can't wait to see your seedling blooms, hopefully you have a new beautiful variety....

When I was in Hawaii and I smelled my first plumeria flower, I didn't think it smelled like roses at all. I thought it blew roses out of the water. Much sweeter, stronger scent then roses. Simply wonderful.

C-4444 In the plumeria world, the plant has a very large number of genes. Because of this, the plant has adapted a wide variety of colors, sizes, shapes and scents to survive in the variety of Caribbean islands and regions of central America where it is native. The scent of the Celadine which is most commonly used in Hawaii for leis is very captivating and know as frangipani, plumeria or waxy citrus. It is only one of dozens of scents found in varieties of plumerias including: rose, cinnamon. peach, spice, fruity, sweet, coconut, bubble gum, and many more. There are a number of plumerias that smell exactly like a rose.
