Oh look at these big, healthy trees and beautiful flowers!
Next time you go, can I go with you? I promise to roll up into a tight little ball that will fit into your suitcase.
Thank you so much for sharing your pictures with us. I keep thinking Hawaii wouldn't be a bad place to live. Here in Carlsbad it was 58F today, and we got 1/2 inch of cold rain. My plumerias were shivering and dreaming of the tropics...

Does that first one have a name?? Amazing colors.

RE: Sharing Hawaii plumeria pictures

I don't know the name on any of them, could only guess some of them, for example the 3rd and 4th pictures I think were Kaneohe Sunburst because I picked up the blooms from the ground and got a close look at them.
The 1st picture was taken in a neighborhood we were just driving around to admire the trees and I was blown away by the color.
From the 5th picture on, they're from the Dean Conklin Plumeria Grove.

As far as the first ine a name? I just got back from the North Shore yesterday. This variety, what ever the name is all over on the north shore, it is a shame, they don't know the names, no need to fertilize. They just cut them off and plant new ones, ignore and they get HUGE. Perfect setting for plumerias. No plumeria societies. So sad. But so beautiful to see them everywhere, the Singapore Whites get so big, they just cut the branches off, standing about 5' tall, with new leave and inflos popping out of a 1" trunk! Crazy!

Hello Everyone...

Sunseeker....Beautiful pictures!!

I love all of the colors...great pics!!

Those trunks are huge...I did get to see some large trunks when i was out in Costa Mesa... Never had seen trunks that large before!!

One tree that comes to mind..Psycho and the Guillots Sunset (California Sally too!) Trunks were the size of live Oaks here on the East Coast..lol...Unbelievable..

I'm glad you had a great visit in Hawaii!!

Thanks for sharing those beauties with us...

Hi to Jen...hope your visit to HI was a relaxing trip for you...we all need some R&R...lol

Hi Iso!!!

Take Care Everyone...

RE: Sharing Hawaii plumeria pictures

Conversation with hubby yesterday as I show him sunseeker's pics:

I say,"Honey, look at what we could see in Hawaii!"
"Wow. Those are beautiful--what are they?"
"Plumerias," I say.
"Really?! They get that big?!" he says, nervously glancing at my growing collection of sticks in the garden. "Do they ever use those for leis?"
I say with exasperation, "YES. Plumeria ARE lei flowers. Do you even hear me when I talk about plants?" (eye roll)

...and this is why I need to find some plumeria friends to form a club--LOL!!

Hi Jennifer and Laura, I may have some good news: My husband told me he wants to apply for a new job (same company) and part of his new territory would be Hawaii! He would "have to" go there 2 or 3 times a year. And where is the problem in this? My one and only question: can the wife go?
Can't wait,
Iso

Soory it took me so long to respond guys, but today was move-out day at our son's university and it was a zoo...
Jen, my husband is a sales rep, but it's not a done deal yet. I hope, I didn't jump the gun. But sunseeker, you are so right, I was sooo excited. I love Hawaii anyway and was already dreaming about where to go and what I would want to buy (yes, I've been reading other posts and collecting info). Keep your fingers crossed for me.
In the meantime, I'll have to go to Germany first (5-26 to 6-19). Don't get too excited about that - I'm going to help my mom ...
Take care everyone and have a great Sunday.
Iso
