Hi all,

I got another plumeria cutting (please see photo). The seller doesn't know its name. I searched online and found that its flowers look like those of California Sunset and Penang Peach. Do you have any idea?

Thanks

I does look an awful lot like CA Sunset. ID'ing from looks alone is really hard because of how the flowers can change.

Hello, Penang peaches have a sharp point at the very tip of it leaves. If you feel a pin like apparatus at the tip....it's a peach.

HHHMMM...I read this and ran out to feel the leaf on my Ca. sunset from JJ this season at Lowe's...and...a pointy thing I have never felt on any other plumeria leaf. So, what do I have then? Label is on and everything and whatever it is, I love it. It is still sending out large great smelling blooms. roxanne

HI Nguy. I can see the hooked tips on the leaves of your plant, which is, as Peg mentioned, characteristic of penang peach. Cali Sunset is actually a PP seedling, so yes, Rox, it would have the hooked tips.

Take care,

The hooked tip is a characteristic of many of Penang Peach's offspring, like CA Sunset. CA Sunset looks so like PP that it's sometimes hard to tell them apart. Whatever you have, it's good!

Hmmm, I must have dreamed that Peg posted on this thread. lol

Hi everyone,

Moonie_57 is correct. My plant doesn't have a sharp point at the tip of its leaves (that why I took the pic with leaves and flowers so you can ID). Last week, I smelled some of the flowers which have opened for several days and cannot tell their kind of fragrance. This morning I smelled the flowers which just opens a little bit, it smells like a strong peach fragrance. So I think it could be Penang Peach. Do you guy know the fragrance of CA Sunset?

Thank you for all your replies.
Nguy

You were dreaming Moonie as I don't have a PP or a CS. Thanks for thinking of me though. :) Peg

Peg (pcput), you don't have a Penang Peach???

Let me know, I have a few cuttings.
