Jungle Jack's Jackie plumeria - different looks according to heat

 Jungle Jack's Jackie (Plumeria rubra) 

Jackie is quite the chameleon according to heat and humidity, but I love all her looks.  These pictures start with May blooms and end with August (110 temps) here in Arizona.

Pink Pansy plumeria

I bought this at the 15th Annual Hawaiian Plumeria Festival Presented by the Southern California Plumeria Society in August 2014.  It had been on my wish list for quite a while and it didn't disappoint - I love the colors, large flowers, and sweet grape scent.
