Thanks

Hard to capture depth of color
In person its much darker & not as pink
Its sort of dark magenta at its darkest

Sort of a very dark Gulf Stream & it fades nice

Thanks

It's that purple & more.
Pictures come out more of a lighter pinkie color
Its real magenta.

Sometimes its lighter. Just depends on age of bloom & temps

Very pleased

Thanks, made a few copies of the forms but I really do have to make measurements of leaves & try to categorise the various forms of all the particulars & questions such as leaf type.

Its a bit daunting & its been so hot.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

If you ask them to send you a white balance card it has measurements on the sides, so that if you take pictures of the leaves on the card it will already have the measurements. It's not as hard as it looks. Read the instructions too.

Never got to register any of them. Have a few deserving. Hope they all survive my failing health.
Two seasons went by without much care or water. This last one was hard on them & lost alot.
Luckily I think my best are still with us.

Have (hope) 2 Mardi Gras seedlings from same plant. This one was from a small 2 or 3 inch branch that formed from the base trunk when Momma was barely 1 foot herself. I took it off as it was so low & it rooted. It slowy became its own tree & this was its bloom. Such a delight!

Momma MArdi Gras seedling is in the ground & inflo'd once but it dropped.

Nice to have this forum to look back upon all the years of the sweet plumeria blooms.

Its a great diary journal & I am snapping up a few pics that I seem to have misplaced over the years.

Sending out warm plumeria wishes to all!
