Any place to buy plumeria in Houston now?

jwhite2947(7b Arkansas)April 25, 2013

I am making a very unexpected trip to Houston tomorrow (Friday 4/26). Is there any place (nursery or individual) I can visit to buy plumeria?

Thanks.

Well, for my money, I can't think of a better place to go than to Seabrook to see Emerson and Nan Willis, aka Nan and The Plumeria Man. I know it's out of the way, but they do have the most wonderful plumeria! Link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Emerson's Plumerias

Barbara Randall is in Friendswood, she has the best plants at the best prices, but is small compaired to Emmerson. She is my favorite seller. Barbra

Thanks for the information. I tried to reach Emmerson but was unable to and didn't see the second post until too late. We were only in Houston for a few hours today. I might get to come back in June for the sale. I hope so.

Joan, Barbara was Emmerson's mentor, per his wife Nancy. She told me this at the PSA sale in Fort Bend. I bought 2 plants from her at the sale, sent one to Andrew. My plant had such a great root system, she rooted it a few months prior. I don't know about Andrews plant, but I know he was very pleased when he got it. I live in San Antonio, and Andrew lives in New York. If you want her email address, send me an email and I will give it to you. Barbra

call me next time you come down this way.
I think Emerson was still in Florida in April, I think he usually comes home the end of April, first of May. He lives 2 blocks from my brother.
Larry, who has a lot of thai hybrids and Mardi Gras is a couple of miles from Emerson.
Paula is up in League City, Becky in LaMarque...most of the growers at the sale in June live in our area.
Tally HO!

Thanks. Hopefully I will know earlier so I can make contact before we head toward Houston next time. My sister who lives in Lufkin is ill. Last week we took my mom down to visit her. While they were visiting we took a quick trip to Houston. I appreciate the information in case we make another trip in the near future.

Hi - my first post. Is Emerson still selling plumerias? We are taking a trip to Galveston this weekend and I was hoping to stop by. His website seems to be down.

Last time I was at his place in June he still had a yard full but he said he was not rooting anymore and will sell off what he has got.

What a shame. It seems like he was the go to man! How do you get in contact with him to organize a visit?
