Hi Pat,
I am pretty confident I can ID your last noid you have pictured. Looks exactly like my Dwarf Singapore Pink.

This was the 1st rooted plumeria I ever bought. I want to say it was 3 years ago. Very nice, compact tree. Mine has grown a ton and I counted 9 mature tips with more on the way!! Flowers are sweetly fragrant and what I love, is that I can put it under my 600 watt HPS over the winter, and enjoy blooms again!

Love the Papaya Nectar! Don't be too dissapointed with the flower color and fragrance. First flowers from a rooted cutting are usually not indicative of what you will see on a more mature tree.

hi all,

thanks for the id Andrew, i did a quick online search for dwarf singapore pink, and it sure looks like it. i got the cutting from my aunt, who got it from a friend. it is fragrant and very compact growing.

i'm pretty happy with the 'papaya nectar' i waited 2.5 years to see the first blooms. i do hope it gets a stronger fragrance and a little more color once they mature.

Great looking blooms.
What do you have wrapped around your plants?

Second Andrew's comment. That's a DSP. Its a fantastic plant to have. Very nice plants.

Is Papaya Nectar known for pushing six petal flowers?

Lonnie, toilet paper rolls. i've seen some of the other members do it to keep the trunks from getting sun burned.

kms2, i have no idea about this particular cultivar, i've tried searching online, but can't find anything on it. i bought a cutting about 2.5years ago on ebay from someone in Florida.

another update,

seems like the 6 petal bloom was an anomaly. all the rest are 5 petals, but they have a darker pinkish color, and a slightly more noticable sweet fragrance. :)

Very nice. I'm going to try the egg method next time!
