Here is a picture of Musk Rainbow today. It has a nice scent, and I enjoy its color. It blends orange, brown, and purple, fading to a soft lavender. It is one of my favorites.

RE: Musk Rainbow today

roxanne- Thanks! I do love this one.This is the color I get with temps. averaging high 70s to low 80s here on the coast. I got this from Matt at Island Plumeria a few years ago. His Open House is coming up! :-)

Thanks, texasplum! The first time I saw this one, it had me at hello! ;-)

Hi Chuy! Thanks so much! I love the colors on this one, too! As it fades, it changes color in a good way.

SHhhhh - One of my favorites as well!! Thank you!

Mine looks a little different here in central Florida, but yours looks great! It could also be the camera.

Hi Laura!! I had to wait for this one to open. Of course, it was a stinker and decided to open up when I was in Mammoth. :-) When I left, all the buds were still too closed to open them. Otherwise, you know I would have pried one open with my little fingers ;-).
I love it, too!! Thank you!!!

SHhhhh- I do see a lot of variation in color with this one. The blooms change color daily. I'll post another pic from yesterday. You can see the older bloom is a faded purple. I can't even imagine what the Florida heat and humidity do for it! Please post a pic if you can!

These are from a few years ago, but they show the difference in older and new flowers:

This was my first flower from this year. The camera settings were on "vivid" so there is a little saturation.

all sooooo lovely, roxanne

RE: Musk Rainbow today

Thank you, Lonnie!!

SHhhhh- I love the colors - so vivid and beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

RE: Musk Rainbow today

The new blooms that opened up today are much darker than the ones before - much more maroonish/brown. Odd because the weather has been pretty consistent.

Makes me wonder what the timing is between when you get heat and humidity and how long after blooms show color change. Just curious...

RE: Musk Rainbow today

RE: Musk Rainbow today

Barb- Thanks so much! I love how it changes its look. If I could have only 5, this would be one of them. ;-)

Shane - Thanks again! I am really enjoying Musk Rainbow this year. It is still changing from day to day. Yesterday's blooms were even a little darker with a more golden center.

rcharles - Thank you for your kind words! Much appreciated!

Jandey! Mahalo for the huge compliment! That's really so nice of you to say. I wish I could take credit, but this flower is very photogenic. ;-) Thanks so much!!
