Thanks! I really like Tabernaemontana fuchsiaefolia, however, it's not too widely available for sale here...the only species commonly available is Tabernaemontana divaricata.

No, I prefer this one - less fussy. Looks a little like a Plumeria to my untrained eye.

Meanie:

Yes, Tabernaemontana fuchsiaefolia is easier to grow than Tabernaemontana divaricata. It looks like a Plumeria flower because it's in the same family.
