Singapore Blooming

Got this in bud about two weeks ago from Californiahoya on eBay. It opened two days ago and the flower is still good looking...! Smells a lot like Clorox Wipes (lemon scented) but not very intense compared to other flowers like oriental lilies or dianthus. I thought this is suppose to be one of the most fragrant plumeria but I am disappointed here. The flower, although plain in color, has a wonderful shape to it that I adore.

Here is 'Hong Kong' which I find smells nicer but the flowers aren't as pretty. Most of the inflo had fallen off from stress but this flower survived.

I don't know about this, but is there any chance the flowers will smell differently once the plant is established, growing and has its full energy? Just a thought.

RE: Singapore Blooming

I heard the same thing. I just really got into plumerias this year and was told the same thing. The age of the tree and it's maturity will come into play in regards to the flower's color and fragrance, maybe even the flower's size too. Still looks nice!

RE: Singapore Blooming

I sure hope the scent becomes better as the plant ages. All this hype about fragrance and I can still find daylilies that have stronger scents than my plants. Maybe I need to visit Hawaii where the tropical island breezes make them smell better lol.

Here's my friend's Pacific Pearl that we got at Home Depot and the scent is better than the previous two I posted. Strange thing is it has 6 petals, which I find ironic since my 'Hong Kong' has only 5 petals when it should normally have 6 petals also.

RE: Singapore Blooming

Wow Great flowers. I just planted a tiny 1" cutting from a singpore frangipani. Thanks for the inspirational pix.
