My newest additions to my plumeria collection.
Spring is finally arriving here in western NY. Yes, it's still cool and at times, it is flat out cold! Not too cold for me to recieve plumeria though. During our last warm spell I got 3 of Mimi's(Aloha plumeria group moderator) Black/Red cuttings which several of us have said are actually Hilo Beauty, then I got 1 Mimi's Home Pride(not sure what varoety it really is), which has sevral diffrent pink and red tones to it, and one that she calls Mimi's Gold. Normally I wouldn't go for the noids(and the yellow has also been ID but I cannot remember the name) but I only paid $6 for the 2 and the Hilo Beauties I also got at a great price.
About 2 weeks ago I bought another Penang Peach plumeria which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone here because so it is one of my all time favs. With that order I also got a Thai variety called 'Super Round'. I will post links to these flowers. I also bought a cutting of Elsie which along with the others is potted in a gatorade bottle over a raw egg.
This week I ordered 2 more trees and one unrooted cutting. I am most excited about these purchases. One of them is called 'Thai Spyn'(which is an awesome pink with a yellow throat) and Thai Jenny. The Thai Jenny is hard to describe but I will post the link for that also.
The cutting I got is called 'Jackie'. Jackie is a mostly white flower with purple tips. What drew me to this flower was the pagoda shaped flower.
Here is the link for the Thai 'Super Round'
The link for the Elsie pic is right above the link for the Thai Super round. Another awesome plumeria, but ofcourse it's a PP seedling!!
Here is the link for 'Thai Jenny'. I love the shape of the petals, the yellow center and the white background with the white band on the outside. I also thought the shape of the petals themselves was quite interesting. They almost seem to be elongated.
The link for the 'Thai Spyn is right below the link for Jenny.
Lasty, here's the link for 'Thai Jackie'. According to the seller, this variety needs temps in tje 90's to bloom but I know that eben during the summer I will be running my HPS light so it can go under that when it is budded up. I just couldn't resist the shape and color of the flowers.
Now I just need to fix the dent in my wallet, LOL!! This darn hobby! Not very cheap but very enjoyable. I also will say that I have yet too be dissapointed with Sonia's plumeria. 90% of the time her trees have been larger than what she describes, and same with her cuttings.
Enjoy the pics and sorry I am not smart enough to do the direct posts! LOL!
