Thanks! This is a very common Plumeria variety here... as I live in San Diego, California. Hundreds of Plumeria varieties are available here in Southern California nurseries...they are very popular trees.

I hope you can eventually find this variety of Plumeria! It should grow well in your hot climate. : > )
