grafted to one of the frankenstein trees, deep in the jungle. I can barely reach it so pics aren't that great and I cant smell it.
very dark pink, almost fuscia. obviously pics are a shade lighter than true color. blooms are nice sized - 4" across
pretty strong white band on back petals
Any idea? pretty sure its from somebody here ;)

mahaloz Irene - I think you may be right. I remember it having a purple tinge before, but I guess its not hot enough for that yet.
Here's a snap of a new bloom.

I don't think Wildfire has those broad petals?

Hetty - thanx for not letting me prematurely close the book on this. I went back to my pics of wildfire a few seasons ago. the petals are more narrow and come to somewhat of a point. oh well - back to the drawing board. any guesses?

Still appreciate the input Irene - good guess though :D

I got Wildfire from Matt (JL stock) and it looks just like your photos, with broad petals. JL's photo and description in the auction listings also fits perfectly to your photos, including the splash of white on the reverse of the petals.

Thanx Tim - the plot definitely thickens now.

This is my wildfire from 2009

Similar, but I don't think its the same. I was looking for all the red/dark pinks I'm supposed to have but can't find and it comes down to 2 - Wildfire and Unconditional Love!
looked at pics of UL and I believe petal shape is a little more similar. but coloration is pretty close to WF.
Anyone w/ UL wanna chime in?

Those '09 photos are fantastic! They do look a bit different than your unknown.

There are three photos of Wildfire in Bud Guillot's flickr.com album that might be helpful to sort it out. The one labelled "Wildfire 3" has broad petals and coloring similar to your unknown. It would appear that the petal width varies with the weather, just like the color.

Bud Guillot is the one who registered Wildfire with the PSA, so his photos should be reliable. If you google "bud guillot plumerias on flickr", it's the first thing that comes up. The Wildfire photos are on the first page of the album, 2nd row top right.

Also, Wildfire blossoms have a white streak on the back on the petal. If you look at the first photo in this thread, you'll see the white streak on the background flower. Irene
