home in Chicago on January 31, 2013.
You may ask why I call it *Mystery Plumeria*.

Many times plumeria plants which for whatever reason couldn’t be listed by name were referred to as “UNK“, meaning unknown.
Reasons that plumeria plants cannot be listed by name include loss of name tags or they were bought color coded like the one plumeria plant shown in the picture.
I received this plumeria with other cuttings which were color coded. The cuttings originated in Central America and were given to me by my dear friend Bob Fisher who is an enthusiastic plumeria aficionado and has been growing plumerias for many years in Florida.
One plumeria grower wrote me that she prefers the term Mystery over UNK and I happily agreed.
Since this time I call any plumeria that is unidentifiable *Mystery Plumeria*.
