Exotic Plant from Region 10
My wife attended an Arts & Crafts Fair in Palm Beach FL last fall. She came home with four plumeria sticks and stuck them into a large pot with a mixture peat moss, perlite and sand and told me not water them. The sticks had a different dot of paint on each one; red, yellow, pink and white.
We placed the pot in our sun room and ignored it. Sometime in March she told me to add a little water to the pot but very little.
We started watering these sticks on a weekly basis and at the beginning of May we placed them on the patio.
Yesterday the yellow stem had a bloom and I found it a very captivating flower and wanted to share it with you.

Beautiful!! It looks like it's from the frangipanni family. We've lots of these (small flowers) in Asia and the sap gets stuck on clothings...so...be careful.
that is beautiful and bet it smells wonderful
Now that was well worth waiting for wasn't it? Thanks for sharing your lovely bloom with us all.
Lovely bloom, I've only seen pictures, looks like there are lots more blooms to follow, please post more photos so we can see the other colors. I am guessing you will be able to keep it as a house plant or in your greenhouse now that it is established.
I had some sticks ( plumeria cuttings) potted and rooting at our garden club sale, some one said who brought the sticks, Just like you I guess the were not familiar with the lovely fragrant blooms
