Hmmmm..thanks for pointing that out--I need to relabel the one in my documents now. It's definitely K. Sunrise. I have all three of the Kanehoe plumerias and this one is, hands down, the prettiest.One thing for sure though is that the names have been a source of confusion for a few years for some folks, even a small degree for those of us who know better and still can't get our pictures correctly labeled. :P

Sonia,

I have two plants--one about 6 feet tall and the other was grown from a center cut and is only about 3-4 feet tall. I have noticed it can branch heavily--several from a inflo site---however, the branches seems to be thin, giving them an almost delicate appearance, though they are not weak. I'd say sort semi-compact-compact growth(will be able to determine better once they grow a little more and do not go to the moon), but can appear a little lanky. It is not however unattractive. It has also proven to be one of those that only seems to bloom well once it has gained some size. When both were little plants, I got a couple of small flowers that really weren't that impressive. Now both plants are simply full of gorgeous blooms. The flowers look like they are made of crepe paper--really cool--and they smell very sweet--floral--jasmine-coconut sort of.

Brad, thanks so much for the growth habit details. Honestly, I just can't buy a plant anymore unless there is good info on available its growth habit. Most of us are probably all reaching the point where space is at a premium and buying a plant that will grow two feet a year just isn't feasible.

As we're on the subject, I've been drooling over your pictures of Edi Moragne and Imperial Crown--can you give us any info on those varieties' growth habits? Thanks!

My Imperial Crown is still to small to make a definite call on it (under 5 feet), but it would appear to be a semi-compact variety. Edi Moragne has been growing for me a bit spreading like Mary Moragne but seems to be a little on the taller side overall. MM is pretty darn comact as Moragnes go and I think the best choice over all if you're looking for a Moragne that requires less space and blooms its head off throughout the year.
