Stan, your Celadine looks great! I'm sure it's liking the warm weather. My Plumerias are looking superb! They're all in full bloom. My neighbor's Celadine is incredible! It's a large shrub, probably 12' tall x 15' wide. Your Croton 'Petra' looks good, also.

45ÂșC has been a cool day in the deserts in California, lately. It's been so extremely hot out there.

Thanks Andy- she's old faithful now at 20 years old. Its been up- it looked great in 2009..then down,it rotted to almost nothing in my terrible effort of planting it in ground.
I actually let it grow all of 2010 indoors just to allow it to grow roots. ALL old roots had rotted in the rains and weedy grasses.
I'm sure if I had made a raised bed for it..with very fast drainage mix..it would grow here. I just dont have that spot to try again. The Mango is growing there.

Wow! That's an old one. I just sold my 20 plus year old 4' tall Celadine a few weeks ago. Celadine is such a common plumeria here. I want the rarer varieties, now. :>))

I grew Celadine in the SF Bay Area easily outside. I just made sure it was in an area under the eaves so it wouldn't get too much water.
