Hawaiian Flowers - The Plumeria Tahitian Rainbow

    Newer Older

    Here is the plumeria "Tahitian Rainbow" which might be the plumeria Pu'u Kahea.Took this shot when the sky was red and gold and it made the blooms glow against the dark backdrop..
    This plumie is a heavy bloomer and a must in anyone collection if you live in a warm area.
    The warm temps and heavy rains make this plumie produce dark vibrant colors..

      OMG... stunning!!! If I remember correctly Pu'u Kahea has a more distinct pink line and less streaks but I could be wrong... though, the scent on PK was rather faint citrus... that's what I know for sure... LOL
      Not too much, eh? :) Hope you're doing great buddy!

      Glad you like it..
      Not sure myself as I no longer have a Pu'u Kahea..
      All the photos I've seen of the Kahea are very faded not so vibrant..
      Lol maybe it's the fert's..

      small fyi - Pu'u Kahea is a ridge in Wai'anae Valley, west side O'ahu, Hawaii. I grew up here and am aware of a variety that we knew locally as Wai'anae beauty. Now that I live on Maui, my aunt has what looks similar that is called Hae Hawai'i which means Hawaiian Flag. Mahalo for letting me share my mana'o (thoughts/memories) here.
