Plumerias at Meyer's Nursery - Pelham

john_trussville(z7b AL)June 28, 2014

Plumerias are rarely found for sale in nurseries around B'ham, but Meyer's currently has about a dozen, locally grown, for sale. They're all around a foot or two tall (plus pot) and very healthy-looking. Some have branched, some even have buds forming. Right now it's a guess as to what color though, either white, pink, or yellow. He has them priced at $20 - $45.

Just thought I'd pass it along in case anyone else has been looking for this beautiful, exotic tropical.

I visited the Anniston museum, and they have an outdoor tropical garden, and it includes some plumerias!
did you know if you wrap them with plastic, they can survive our winters??

This makes me excited because I've wanted plumerias myself for quite some time.

No, I'm sorry but plumeria will NOT survive a zone 7B winter merely wrapped in plastic. Please don't try that, they will not make it through a winter here. I'm sure that any at the Anniston museum are dug & wintered indoors. Just google "plumeria care" & read up.

I got 2 cuttings from a friend in Fountain, FL (just NE of PCB) and she said they must be put in her greenhouse. Don't Plumerias bloom on old wood? I was told on the Plumeria forum that the roots may survive in the ground here, but if frost kills the tops, there will be no blooms. Still in anticipation - as long as they smell good, any color is fine! Did anyone get any at the store mentioned above?
