This is, by far, the best cultivar we have developed and released. This extremely beautiful and large flower is a cross of Maui Beauty and Aztec Gold, with Maui Beauty being the pod parent. This pretty blossom is named after my dear cousin Betty Jeanne Dixon. This is the first time this plant has been offered for public sale on our website! This beautiful cultivar produces gorgeous 4″deep golden blooms with brilliant thick, deep pink to red edges and, contains hints of orange. What’s really interesting about this flower is that as it “fades” it actually darkens to a pleasing fruit-punch red color. In the fragrance department, she will not disappoint with an intense and gorgeous perfume. From her Aztec Gold pollen parents she inherited a peachy fragrance. However, we have noticed that perhaps Maui Beauty played a role as well in this because it goes one step further and actually smells more like a spicy peach cobbler! I have been asked for the last four years when we would finally release this plumeria and, though it has taken a while, we finally decided to offer very limited numbers. Not one person who has seen this blooming in our nursery has not been immediately enthused with its beauty and inquired about availability! Can you tell we are proud of this one yet? 🙂 The beautiful changes that take place in the maturation process of this flower have been photographed for you in the main picture. On the left hand side you can easily see the darker, fruit punch colored “fading” blooms; on the right you can see the newer flowers. What a contrast! Her growth habit is also somewhat unique. She is semi-compact, leaning towards compact. It is recommended you stake her branches when she is under 4 feet tall so she has a nice, upright, and firm base from which to present her tendency to “weep” on her upper branches. Some of her branches will very gently sweep downward, then, back up on the tips. This looks really awesome when she is in bloom. The mother tree has to coolest shape due to this and everyone who has seen her on-site has commented on how beautiful she is. The attached pictures are an excellent representation of the flowers you can expect from an established specimen. You will not find this plant any place else as the release of this beauty is solely the privilege of its developer, Brad’s Buds and Blooms. ROOTED PLANTS—- NOT GRAFTED—14″-16” tall, measured from the soil line.
