I thought we had a "daily blooms" thread like in the DL forum. Oh well, I started a monthly since I don't have that many. Please share your blooms with us. Here is my Hilo Beauty, the most reliable bloomer I have. I adore dark red flowers.

The bloom is so high though that I can't smell it.

here is a view of the tree, potted and placed against a brick wall. Gets at least 6 hrs of full sun. Hard to see, but to the left of HB is Scott Pratt which hasn't bloomed yet. Another beauty w/ dark red flowers.

This bloom on my dwarf Singapore Pink has been there like forever! here is a view of the whole plant, barely 1'x1'. A local nursery had a DSP that was about 5'x5' and it was a showstopper. They wanted $400 and still, it was gone in a week.

Hetty gave me some suggestions for not necessarily dwarf but very compact plumies, I'm ready for more of these small pretties. Still looking for the one that speaks to me.

That's a gorgeous DPS you have there! So healthy looking. And I love it in that urn.
I splurged and paid $ 250 for a sizeable one a few years ago. It's getting very big now but so dense, just wonderful.

Here is another large bloomed one, Charlotte Ebert. This one is also very fragrant.

No it is full size, it is a cutting I got from a lady in Yuma Valley. This is the Yuma Valley Sing I have posted before(no pics right now)...but now I am not sure that it is a true 'Singapore', but another obtusa leaf.

Thanks Hetty! I got the Rain Star it from Evelyn from Ebay. She got that particular one from Maui. It is a huge flower, 4"+. Nice sweet smell. The seedling is a vibrant pink/salmon, the picture looks very true to the color.

Thanks, guys.

Nery, I like the yellows very much too. They tend to smell the best with the exception of 'Spidery Yellow,' which has no fragrance at all.

Hetty and Davie, both TS and the fruit salad have big flower heads, which makes them really great for sure.

All of these are so great! I want the one you just posted Clare. All those buds excite me!

Oh Clare, are you planting yours directly in your garden now? No pots? You will be able to have huge trees where you are, 10B right?

Hi Kell! Yes, many of mine are in the ground now, but I still have about 70 or so in pots. They should grow bigger now that the roots have some room, but I'll have to keep them fairly trimmed, I think, because they are planted 6-8 feet apart. Yes, I'm in 10b, I think! LOL! It gets down to 35 here in the winter at the coldest and only for a few hours before sunrise.

Yes, I'm going to leave them in the ground, and they do get big -- up to 30 feet tall eventually. I'm going to have to prune and will probably remove some trees to make room for other ones to grow.

There is a guy out by me who has 3 Aztec Gold plumeria and they are big. He said he would take 50 dollars a piece. Plus he gives a NOID free. His Noids are from his plants that broke off and he just stuck them in the dirt and did not mark them.

This picture is of the 3 azetec gold. They one in the front is mine and I forget its name but it is wrote on it. See the trunks on those Aztec Gold? He has to move and is selling half of what he has around 100 because his yard will be smaller. Anyone from Houston want to go see them I would be glad to meet anyone at I-10 and Hwy 146 and it is maybe 4 miles from there. He has an evergreen and curly white, curly pink not sure what else. They range from 20-50 dollars and you get a free NOID with each one you buy and the Noids are nice plants. All are too big to ship.. JLMK

I understand. I just had to buy a few of his. His Dad collocted them from all over. Bali, you name it if he traveled he brought back cuttings he took. He had a license to do that.

Here is a picture of his but you can't see them all. This is only half the size or less of his green house.

The Aztecs are not cheap at $ 50 - they are pretty common and grow like weeds, but the other plants may be of interest if they are a decent size.
You could always sell on some of the cuttings...

As big as the trunk of those Aztec are and 6 ft tall with quite a few points is not cheap at 50 dollars? He was getting 100.00. I have not seen many cutting of the commons for less than 8.00 if that cheap. But than I don't shop for them much ever.

If I have the money I would sell cuttings on ebay. But I love Plumerias so much I bet I would not cut it. lol

I agree with Hetty about $50 being pretty expensive for 'Aztec Gold,' which is pretty common -- even given the size. I've been selling at reduced prices this year due to the economy. I just sold some big ones for $35 each, and they were named varieties such as 'Dean Conklin,' 'True Blue' from Oz, and 'Mango Blush' -- all with 6 tips or more. Maybe you can talk him down if you buy a bunch from him -- ask him for 10% off a large purchase.
