Jungle Jack's at Riverside, CA nursery

toomanydogs(9B)May 3, 2014

After I cajoled and wheedled and whined for months the owner of Parkview Nursery on Magnolia/Jackson in Riverside,CA got a big order from JJ. It arrived yesterday and I had my pick of the litter today! These plants are in far superior condition to the ones that show up at Home Depot and Lowe's, trust me. Most have inflos or multiple inflos, even on the one gallon plants. I restrained myself and only got an Xquisite, a beautiful Desert Sunrise with multiple inflos and a Captivate. Though I may need to go back......

Good deal! But I had to laugh... you begged... they ordered big... you bought just one... hehehehe.... I think you better go back.

Xquisite is really nice!

Oh, thank you for posting this. That's only 20 minutes away from me (well, if I drive really fast :)

How was pricing?

Take care,

I bought 3! Xquisite, Desert Sunrise (even though I already have a little one) and Captivate. I neglected to mention that I put a hold on a Gina with two inflos and a J105 with three inflos that he hasn't figured out the price for. Don't worry, I will make it worth his while to have done this! And I encourage all my SoCal friends to pitch in and help!

Toomanydogs,
Does Parkview Nursery still carry Marilynns Gardens plumies also? I've only been to Parkview once, I recalled they use to have a HUGE Singapore white tree in a container, is it still there?

Thanks

Freak4plumeria, the big singapore is still there and already blooming!

Nicole, the prices are JJ list price, it was part of the contract. These are better quality plants than the ones that go to Lowe's, better inflo count and more sturdily rooted. Some of the Lowe's plants are way wobbly in my experience.

Roxanne, let me know if there is something you need and I will get it for you and pass it on through SimiDude!

Toomanydogs,
WOW... That Singapore must be huge now as I saw it in 2006, and it was a huge tree back then. I offered to buy it from them and they told me it was not for sale....
Marilynn might not be too happy...lol Seems very few places are carrying her plumies anymore...

Thanks for the info and happy shopping. I might have to stop by Parkview to check it out on my way to Palm Springs.
Thanks again

Allison, you know my modest little list from JJ: Biggest CS3 you can find, an Orotai, and a Cherokee Geisha. And maybe a Tiger. That's all. I'm practicing moderation this year! Roxanne, thanks for checking up on me, too!

Nicole ... 20 minutes? I'd drive that to get an iced tea!!! Lol...

Allison, great varieties!! You are so lucky to get that huge DS! Sweet!,,

George... Lol.. Modest little list. HA! Love the list though.., Orotai sounds awesome. I have seen pics, but I bet it's even more beautiful in person!!!

James.. You need to go just to look at the Singapore!!! Then look at all of the other beauties!!!

Happy shopping!!!!

Laura, I said that I was "practicing" moderation, not that I was any good at it!

I think this is going to be a good year though. Lots of inflos. Counting three on Bill Moragne so far, and given how huge each inflo is on Bill, that should be quite a sight.

Still going through the Season of Hope, where I go out with a microscope 10 times a day and see if can spot the beginning of an inflo on a plumeria! Lots of reason for Hope this year.

Allison, good job once again!

Now that Tim has been overwhelmed by the pent up demand for JJ plumerias in the Inland Empire, he has asked me to come up with a list of what other higher end JJ plumerias he should ask John to send him. I already know what SimiDude wants and have it duly noted, but what do the rest of you locals want to see in Riverside? Please post it here and I will pass it on to Tim the king of Parkview Nursery.

Freak4plumeria, Tim is getting a shipment from Marilyn. It will be her yellow ones.

SimiDude - good choice on CS3! That's one on my someday list too. Can you post a pic of the Stenopetala? I have one but it's small and has not woke up yet.

The flower pic was from last year. I just took a pic of the larger tree, to show how different it is from other plumeria. It's quite vine-line and needs support.

Peg, hanging basket? Didn't think of that. It would have to hang from a tall place. The one I have is about 6.5-7' high at this point and the leaves are just starting. Will update when it blooms!

Thanks, Laura! How is your Steno doing?

Also, wanted to mention that Matthew at Island Plumeria just got 100 Jungle Jack plants in. I believe they are all two gallon, but if you're closer to LA/Ventura than Riverside, you might call him. I'm sending him a list of suggestions for his next order, if anyone has suggestions let me know and I'll pass it on.

Totally bummed about the Orotai situation (that's California-speak for "I'm very sad that the Orotai plumeria will not be available this year").

Roxanne, JJ does have some XQuisites, I believe only small ones, though.

I ordered a CS3 from JJ today. His shipping is pretty reasonable, at least to the LA area. Now I am just holding out for a Cherokee Geisha and an Xquisite (and an Orotai, if anyone has any non-dangerous black market plumeria connections).

Talked to TIm of Parkview Nursery yesterday and asked when he will have his next JJ premium line shipment in. He got my list of all the requests but hasn't gotten around to it yet. Thinks he will be able to have a new shipment next week though. I will keep bugging him, don't worry!

The Great Circle of Enablers, ever ready. :)

Already placed an order for myself and a few friends, but K likes to go and personally inspect, too. Give me a shout if you find something awesome!

George, you have fine taste and your steno looks very cool; I've never seen the whole plant before.

Laura, you and Peg will soon be visiting the Mother Ship and hopefully there will still be some plants left after Nicole, Rox, George, and Allison get done with their lists. Oh, my!

James, my lovely cutting is going off with leaves now and I'm always checking the tips. She really is a slow grower but very healthy and well adjusted to the Texas climate.

Went to Parkview Nursery just now and Tim says the premium only JJ order will come in either Tuesday or Thursday. He has lots of blooming Xanadu, pink/white and others. Large "Premium Pink" that has a wonderful scent but I must hold off for the next shipment. Big Penang Peach with an inflo too, very tempting.

Simi- what a gorgeous Steno! Love it on the trellis :)

Jen- LOL the plumeria people were showing up in droves when I was there! I don't even know how I ended up bringing home 5. How does that happen? LOL. I already have it bad this year, despite my best efforts to stay level headed about it(8 total already added). Can't wait to see pics of your blooms this year!

Take care!

Jen,
Thanks for the update :)
I think I did mention that she performs like a semi dwarf/super compact grower.
The mother plant is from 1979 and from the soil line up is about 6ft to 7ft tall, blooms on even a 1/2" tip, thus the inflos on every tip when she finally decides to bloom and the many tips that branch out. So if you treat her well you will find her a profuse bloomer with a plant loaded with inflos of glowing/neon color depending on where she is grown. I noticed that in hotter temps like FL, TX she looks more like Tobas fire, but in cooler coastal climates she is more reds/mauve/orange with some yellow and a lot of streaking on the edges of the petal, not as much as JJ's tiger though.
A friend in Ocean Side has had hers since 2006, since she was local she got a rooted 30" multiple tipped plant. As of a year ago it hasn't grown much.

So enjoy her but remember it will be a while before you can share the aloha.

Cheers.

I made it on Saturday to the one stop in Central Texas for the Jungle Jacks Express as it heads to Florida. Water Garden Gems east of San Antonio. I put "Frozen" on the DVD for the girls and we ventured east on the 10 Freeway to be there when they opened.

They had a pretty good selection of the Jungle Jack named by Color (yellow/white, Pink, Premium Red, etc.) a few purple jacks, Thumbelinas, Red hots, Dazzle, Christina, a beautiful shaped Penang Peach about to bloom and a Pink/red or something like that had great potential by its shape. I hope someone buys that Penang soon. They are nice people out there and had quite a few standard yellow/whites for anyone interested in starting off.

They also had recently placed their display plumerias back in the ground around some of the water features. No leaves or blooms just yet.

I left with a few forum favs. a very well shaped 3 tip Scentsational, 3 tip Gina, 3 tip Desert Sunrise, and a not frequently mentioned 4 tip Milan.

Tim at Parkview Nursery in Riverside got his second order of all named plumeria today. I have a partial list, got there right before they closed at 5:30. Among others they have: Laredo Princess, Yellow Gina, Queen Amber, Pink Jack, Dragon Tears, Xquisite, Mandalay, J105, Adagio, Fuji Mist, Tangerine Dream, Vienna Rose and Marco Polo. Alas, no Purple Jack. Many have inflos on more than one tip and all were nicely shaped plants. Hurry on in!

They are going fast!

Roxanne,

Jenny and Temptation do not perform that well in coastal temps. Both just look yellow, unless there happens to be an extremely hot heat wave (like now), then you will see some color. I gave my Jenny away last season, HUGE temptation is kicking around somewhere in my patch. Jackie is another one that looks yellow in cooler temps.

Just an FYI before u spend your time and money on them.

Good choices, Roxanne! I just picked up a Laredo Princess and an Adagio at Parkview. They had more Laredo Princess one gallon for $19 if you want me to get you one and send it via George. Laredo Princess has a lovely sweet floral scent. They also have the Incognito, I was sorely tempted by it too. Last summer I got Christina and Tai Surprise at either Lowe's or HD. I love Tai Surprise! Temptation has fantastic veining here in the high heat of Riverside but trust freak4plumeria for the coastal knowledge, why waste the money to be disappointed by the lack of color. Tesla Girl is more expensive as is Xquisite so they won't be sent to the big box stores intentionally but accidents do happen! That's part of the fun of going to Lowe's, it's like a treasure hunt!

Roxanne, maybe this is being selfish (I live 2 miles from the ocean in Orange County and I get cool marine layer weather more than I'd like), but I wouldn't give up on Temptation... I bought one last year, it bloomed for the first time at Christmas last year, early winter, short days cool days 60 degrees or so, cool nights in my un-insulated home, and on Christmas day I got yellowish flowers with hints of greater things with more heat... I think Temptation could still be decent once it warms up, will let you know later this season (although had it been blooming this week, after 95-100 degree days I am sure it would be vibrant haha).

James, thanks again for the great info! We all keep falling in love with photos of these flowers at their very best and forget they can fall far short of their potential.

I wanted to order Temptation but John talked me into Serenade instead, said it's a more impressive compact bloomer.

Rox, do you have a small truck for that haul? :)

Jandey, he/she just would not quit following us. I think it thought it was in Mexico and we were the pong a that had the people in it to reach over and touch it????

Haha, Roxanne. I am ready with my list, too. I will say, out of your list, I have definitely seen at Lowes/HD (as named plants, not just "premium" whatevers) in the past:
fools gold (saw lots of these), inca gold (got one of these last year at HD), incognito, and jenny.

Roxanne, let me call them and check. I am back to work so can't get there until the weekend. They don't open until 8:30 and close at 5:30, foolish people.

Thanks, Roxanne. I do my best to keep the legends alive!

And Allison, I know how you fee! The See's Candies in Simi Valley opens at 10 and closes at 6! What the heck? I can't tell you how many times I've been late to work when I needed my chocolate-butter caramel-nut fix! They need to come up with some humane hours! Have compassion!!

The lesson we can all take away from this is that whining, cajoling and wheedling will get you what you want ;)

Luckily my husband is a computer person so he does not notice me when I drive the car down the driveway and sneak the new plumeria into the shade house because he is so intent on his monitor screen. Love the Xquisite, mine is blooming away. So is Malika but the color is a pale peach, nothing like the catalog picture! It's only in the high 80s here, perhaps it needs more heat to be red?

Yes Home Depot sales Plumeria from Junkle's Jack....As a matter fact I bought 3 Plumeria which are the Panittas'Red and the Hearts' Desire and the other one can't remember the names....I kept the Heart Desire Plumeria and Returned back the Panittas' Red and the other one as well both since was Grafted....Even the man at Home Depot confirmed that it was ended grafted... I prefer that the braches comes from the Original body than having two different bodies it's just doesn't look normal....The price wasn't cheap at all...The Panitta"s Red and the other Pink colors was about 2 to 3 feet tall and priced was $39.99 each and the small ones are priced for $24.99....Just be aware or check all the details of the Plumeria that you are buying from Home Depot or Lowe's that was provide by Jungles Jack because some of them are grafted and some aren't...so I decided to buy a few of my Plumerias thru Bloomingplumerias and 1-stop-aloha thru Ebay...At least I have the exact colors that I wantd since these Two are refutable sellers...By the way there was someone posted here that needed to see a photos of the "Rare Kolika Plumeria" and as matter of I have a Tree that just Blooming at the moment so if still neede I can Post a few photos of the Rare Kolika Flowers...Thank you

I didn't think that JJs grafted any plants? Thought all their stock came from cuttings?
