Greetings! I do believe the 3rd pic is called California Sunset. If it smells like peaches, that's def what you've got.

Each plant looks a tiny bit different, and once they bloom more, their color will change a bit & get bleached by the sun.

They are very beautiful. :)

Angel, thanks for the possible i.d.

I will look it uo on the web. The flower has a very strong plumeria scent, but peaches does not come to mind in identifying the scent. I will have to ask my hubby to smell it for his opinion. It is a very strong scent though, almost perfume -y. It doesn't smell like Singapore White, which is what I consider "plumeria" scent.

I kind of wondered about Cooktown Sunset, which I wonder if that is the same as California Sunset? Jennifer

RE: ID help!

I'm so not the expert on this, but this is what my California Sunset looks like right now:

Maybe it's a lot pinker when it first blooms, though?

RE: ID help!

Hello Jen,

Ill have to look for my pic of my California Sunset...

What ever it is, it sure is beautiful!!!! What does it smell like?

Hopefully Bill or James will see this post and maybe chime in!!!

It does look like a California Sunset, but you know they all have different colors in different climates!!!
WHere did u get your cutting? Did you receive it from someone local?

Ill look for my pic for you tomorrow...just got home and its late...but loved looking at your blooms!!!!

They sure are beautiful!!!

Take care,

Laura in VB

RE: ID help!

Jennifer, I'm pretty sure Cooktown Sunset is a tall-growing Aussie variety and California Sunset is a JJ seedling of Penang Peach.

Whatever that last one is, the colors are fabulous.
