We have featured a lot of plumeria pictures here at Hawaii Picture of the Day. We love their strong fragrance, their simple look, their sparse-looking tree, and the way they bunch on branches or in leis.
This sunshine yellow plumeria has a contrasting red stripe on the underside of each of its five petals. When not yet in full bloom, this stripe gives the flower a red swirl that makes it look more like candy than a flower. When we were children, we can remember similar looking summertime treats sold from the neighborhood ice cream truck.
