Makanani:  A 3" multi colored flower with cream, red and yellow. Medium Grower with a mild sweet fragrance. Massive tree in Ridge View, City Heights, San Diego. Means"pretty eyes" Hawaiian Instead, the name should have been 'PILAU', which means "Stink”. A multicolor white and pink with large yellow center. Good overlapping, rounded petals. Vigorous grower. A new California cultivar from an old tree in San Diego. Next to the Makanani is the Cat Crap plumeria, named by Mr. Bast, the owner.  He used to love to tell people that were admiring it to go over and smell the beautiful white flower.  People would do so and he would bust out laughing when they took a big whiff and would make a horrible face.  He would tell them that they just got a whiff of cat crap. Commander Bast pulled that one on me back in the 70s.  The plant at the Bast's former house still has that awful smell. Good graft host. Very slight scent, strong grower. Blooms well in cooler weather. Very tall inflos. Sets seed.
