Yellow means sunshine, hope and happiness. Yellow is a sign of hope and return as with the symbol of yellow ribbons tied around the tree calling for the safe return of love ones including our brave military men and women from harm's way.

Shades of yellow can be described as banana, chiffon, cream, golden, goldenrod, lemon, saffron, and topaz. Yellow suggests freshness and citrus fruitiness, such as lemon yellow which also suggests a clean inviting refreshing scent, which is probably why lemon scent is so popular in so many aerosol products.

The same is true when it comes to yellow plumeria flowers, such as 'Aztec Gold', 'Bali Whirl', 'Celadine', 'Cyndi Morange', 'Lemon Drop', 'Nebel's Gold', and 'Paul Weissich'.

Aztec Gold has golden yellow flowers. Bali Whirl is the first plumeria with double flowers which tend to be between three and four inches in diameter. Celadine is also known as 'Common Yellow' and 'Graveyard Yellow'. Cyndi Moragne has large, four to five inches in diameter, flowers which are white with a large yellow center. Lemon Drop has brilliant yellow flowers with each petal showing a small white edge surrounding the broad yellow area. Nebel's Gold is an often overlooked plumeria flower which is rather popular on the Hawaiian Islands. Paul Weissich has large golden yellow flowers with an orange center and pink lines radiating through the petals.

These are just some examples of yellow plumeria flowers offering a variety of fragrances. Applying proven guidelines these delightful plumerias can be successfully grown in your garden.
