[ Plumeria subsessilis | Posted on February 1, 2015 ]

The leaf petioles on this species are extremely short, making it easy to identify.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria stenopetala) | Posted on February 1, 2015 ]

The scent of this Plumeria species is almost irresistible. Reminiscent of Gardenia, and extremely strong.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra) | Posted on February 1, 2015 ]

The blooms of Plumeria rubra are extremely fragrant, but interestingly each variety or cultivar has a unique scent. This can range from fruity, to sweet floral, to intense gardenia-like. Occasionally a variety will have a less than pleasant odor, but most Plumeria blooms are delightfully scented. Some of the most fragrant varieties are 'Vera Cruz Rose' (rose-like scent), 'Mary Helen Eggenberger' (smells like sour candy), Makaha Sunn (strong floral fragrance, one of the best!) and Aztec Gold (smells of ripe peaches).

[ Plumeria filifolia | Posted on January 31, 2015 ]

This is an elusive species and there is doubt whether there is such a thing....

[ Strangler Fig (Ficus aurea) | Posted on November 13, 2014 ]

This tree generally starts life as an epiphyte, with a seed germinating in a suitable spot in a host tree. It sends roots down, and as soon as they touch the ground, the tree starts growing rapidly, often strangling the host plant, which is how it got its common name of "Strangler Fig."

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Just Peachy') | Posted on September 27, 2014 ]

This cultivar was registered by Wendy Bloomquist under the name 'Jean Adams' but is universally known as 'Just Peachy'.

[ Bellyache Bush (Jatropha gossypiifolia) | Posted on September 24, 2014 ]

This is considered invasive in many areas. It spreads very easily from seed.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Festivity') | Posted on September 23, 2014 ]

This is a seedling of 'India' and I have just proposed it for registration. The colors are a little muted due to rainy days. It is a very striking and vibrant flower.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Tequila Sunrise') | Posted on September 14, 2014 ]

This outstanding variety was introduced by Atom Cholpavee of Thailand.

[ Akee Apple Tree (Blighia sapida) | Posted on August 7, 2014 ]

This fruit is edible only when prepared correctly. 'Ackee and Saltfish' is the National Dish of Jamaica.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria obtusa 'Hanging Windmill') | Posted on July 20, 2014 ]

This is a compact growing Plumeria, almost shrub-like.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Blazing Star') | Posted on July 20, 2014 ]

This is one of the cultivars from noted Thai grower Kukiat Tanteeratarm.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra x obtusa 'Mele Pa Bowman') | Posted on July 19, 2014 ]

It is believed this Plumeria is a cross between Plumeria obtusa 'Singapore' and Plumeria rubra 'Celadine'.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Helene') | Posted on July 16, 2014 ]

The blooms of this cultivar have the interesting characteristic that they are first white and then turn pink in the course of the day under the influence of sunlight.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Don Ho') | Posted on May 27, 2014 ]

This is from Jim Little Farms on Oahu.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Opera Rouge') | Posted on May 26, 2014 ]

This is a little known Australian cultivar.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Scarlet Knight') | Posted on May 25, 2014 ]

This is the officially registered name of the cultivar most widely known as 'Wildfire'.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Tropic Myst') | Posted on May 24, 2014 ]

It's possible this is the same cultivar as 'Kimo'; there are many similarities.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Penang Peach') | Posted on May 19, 2014 ]

This is a very compact growing variety and therefore suitable to be grown in pots.

[ Plumeria (Plumeria rubra 'Sally's Pink Ribbon') | Posted on April 29, 2014 ]

This is a new cultivar, which I named for a friend who was dealing with breast cancer at the time it first bloomed. I am happy to say she is cancer free now.
