Hot weather brings out color in 'Kimo'

This extended hot weather has really brought out the intense colors in my plumeria blooms. Here's 'Kimo', one of my favorites. The bloom is actually a bit darker than the camera portrays (cheap camera).

That is a nice color. I also like the shape of the bloom.

Dave- I learned that humidity has a great effect when combined with heat. A few weeks ago we warmed up and the flowers were nice. Then a batch of humid air came in from the south which is rare in Calif. My reds and dark pinks got so rich in color for a week. Then the sea breeze sent the humid air back to Arizona, and my colors lightened considerably. Even though the heat was about the same, the change of humidity caused considerable color change. By the way, that Kimo is so nicely colored. Mine was more yellow orange and not nearly as intense. I like the looks of yours. Bill

Bill, we have been quite humid all summer as well as HOT, so maybe you've got something there. Today a dry cool front moves in, with cooler nights, so we'll see how that influences colors.
