Plumeria stenophylla seedling

This doesn't look much like the rubra seedlings I've grown. It's also a much slower grower. I started this one about 5 or 6 months ago. My rubras would be at least twice the height and much thicker stemmed, not to mention the needle like foliage. The mature tree I took the pod from had narrow leaves but they did look similar to a rubra. The pod was similar to a rubra but thinner and the seeds were a bit thinner with a shorter wing. I wonder how long this will take to look like a mature plant? I got the pod when I was in the Cayman Islands this past winter. The trees were at least 30' tall. Does anyone grow this variety?

That's really interesting Karyn, I've never seen that variety! It's so different, very cool! What do the flowers look like?

RE: Plumeria stenophylla seedling

The blooms were very similar to a regular plumeria. The petals were a bit thinner and a little longer. These were from a white flowered tree. I don't know if stenophylla comes in any other colors or not. It wasn't that this was such a wonderful plumie. It's just that I was in the Cayman's and the pods were there. I collected a huge variety of seeds there. Like other tropical areas, many of their weeds are our nursery plants.
