Pink Plumeria


Pink Plumeria (Plumeria sp.)
Location:  Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

We have several varieties of Plumeria in our garden.  This one bears blossoms with reddish centers and shaded pink petals.  This variety is deciduous; the tree branches are bare of leaves and flowers for about half the year.   The blossoms have a sweet aroma, and they are often used in leis.

I'm going to try again. Too many misspelled words.
Beautiful Bobbie. I can almost smell them from here.

The red and pink color combination is beautiful. Nice shot.

@ Becky - Thanks. If I could send some of the aroma your way, I would do it!

@ T and S - Thank you. Each blossom is a slightly different shade of pink. They look like watercolors to me.

Very pretty flower.

Plumerias are the national flowers here in Nicaragua but they seldom have as nice color as that one. Most commonly they are white or a more drab pink.
