Managed to snag a Captivate. Looks like a better version of Penang Peach (already have 2 haha). The Lowes in Rancho Cucamonga has Xanadu, Angels Touch, Thumbelina, and of course Divine.
The Xanadu had a quite a strong scent; It was like buttered popcorn with a bit of peaches mixed in.

Jeff,

Check out Buchanan's Native Plants in Houston, Maas in Seabrook, Turner's GardenLand in Corpus Christi, and Water Garden Gems in San Antonio.

They just got some beauties!

Roxanne - lucky you! I didn't see any reds or true pinks, really, at the Lowes near me (no premium any color, either) -- except for the J105 that I picked up (which is more of a rainbow?). So far, in the several Lowes that I've gone through, I've seen J105, Jenny, Incognito, Thumbelina, Mini-White, Divine, Xanadu, Lemon Ice ... that's all I can remember at the moment!

Well, I checked a Lowes in Irvine yesterday, nothing. Today on the way home I visited the Lowes near home in Huntington Beach. Very disappointing, a table full of lots of plants but all Lemon Ice and Mini White, nothing else.... very disappointing :(

The Lowe's on Limonite in Eastvale only had a few Angel's Touch and Divine left last night around 6:00. Ultra pathetic. Too bad I have to work so I can't check other stores out.

Roxanne, great score! I'm looking for a Premium Pink after smelling the large one at Parkview, had a wonderful floral scent. Temptation is a beautiful flower, good choice.

Temptation may not be that color here on the coast BUT it was loaded with inflos. I am not sure if all the premium pinks are the same, no marks on stems this year. I did see a premium pink/white...only 1 info though on a 5 tip tree.

It is getting to be all about "who wants to be an easy happy bloomer " for me now days in the hunt. roxanne

I went back to the Lowes where I got my J105, and all that was left was Xanadu (a bunch of them!) and a couple Jennys. Everywhere else has been only Thumbalina, Mini-White, and Divine (and a couple of Lemon Ices here and there). So, I agree, not as exciting as I hoped. But there will be more shipments throughout the summer, and there is also Home Depot to check (anyone gone there yet??).

Simi Valley only got California Sunset, Dvine and Thumbalina, but I had a talk with the Lowes buyer and the seller (and they wanted to know who this "Roxanne" was - I had to tell them the epic story - of the great Allison's nursery order changing accomplishments, and how it had paved the way for the mighty Roxanne person they'd all heard about and the way she built an incredible army and network of Lowe's plumeria buyers reporting back to her and each other!), and hopefully we'll get more next week. Didn't see too many in Burbank, but I'll be checking back. Hoping to snag a Captivate.

I'm workin' for it, though ... LOL. I keep leaving to run "errands" (which involves me speeding along to the next closest Lowes and back and then sneaking the plant into the backyard through the back gate!) I've been to a bunch so far. And I've waded though many, many Divines, Thumbalinas, Lemon Ices, and Mini-whites. The ones I've found so far were the only "special" ones in the group ... so I bought them. LOL

Still would love a Captivate, and still looking for a Desert Sunrise (*ahem*, I'm lookin' at *you*, Universe!)

Found Captivates at HD on Euclid and Riverside in Ontario. Landed on that has seven tips :) and another with three tips and an inflo. This HD does not move its plumeria very quickly. They have them in with the tropical plants on the "inside" garden. The HD on Mountain and 8th in Upland had several Desert Sunrise on Wednesday.

Daogirl - that's an astounding deal! Congratulations! Firestorm is one of my favorites - big flowers with incredible colors that are even beautiful when they fade. Mine more than doubled the number of tips since last year, it's a good grower. An inflo on almost every tip. Really nice scent. Only criticism (based on a single year) is that the inflo didn't last very long. Let's see this year. Congrats on that one!

my thoughts exactly @daogirl, until yesterday on a whim i stopped by murrieta lowes and scored a JJ purple jack and an el corazon....i was pinching myself. I went by JJ nursery this week and one of the workers showed me the greenhouse of plants that are going out to stores...many different varieties than what we have seen thus far, but they (JJ) aren't price matching this year...im mad i didnt take pics in the greenhouse >:(
keep checking back at lowe's because it's only just begun, my local ones said to check on fridays and mondays..hope this helps someone score a rare one for a great price! :)

both my closest HDs don't have any yet...

I also went to Lowes today, but it was mostly Divines, a couple Incognitos, and a single Jubilee, which I have.

Roxanne - that's weird that your HD doesn't have JJ. It's actually the first place that I ever saw a JJ plumeria. Sometimes HD puts them in weird places, though - like inside with the houseplants.

Laura - thank you! I'm only kind of thinking about going back to get a supernova. LOL

Okay Dao....I got soooo excited when 1 of my 3 Premium Pinks opened up...it is pale yellow white though. Faint scent and I am hoping it is due to the coastal climate. Each tip has inflos and 2 more plants to open and see what they are. Going to bring the bloom up to the computer to see if I can find it on the catalog/site. Checking again on Wednesday. You have certainly gotten some great ones. roxanne

Roxanne, I saw a lot of plumeria blooming at HD/Lowes that were really washed out & didn't look anything like they were supposed to - I think it definitely is the temps. But, I guess there's always a chance it was mislabeled. Is there a marking on the trunk?

Have you thought about emailing John with pictures? Maybe once the inflo has fully opened? He told me that the premium colors aren't always named varieties on the website, but he has a database of all his plants that he can reference. It might take awhile, but you'll probably get an answer.

I picked up Red Jack (2 gal), SuperRound (2 gal with inflo) and .... wait for it ... Desert Sunrise! YES!!!

Big selection this time - although I picked up the only Red Jack, SR, and DS that I saw, I also saw more Purple Jack, El Corazon, Diva, lots of blooming Elsies, Dynamite, Jubilee, Supernova, Bird of Paradise, and some others that I'm blanking on right now.

There are 10+ 1 gallon Purple Jacks at the HD in Rialto (on Foothill), if anyone is looking to pick one up for under $15. All single-tip, no inflos (yet). This HD also had some Jennys, Delightfuls, Premium Pinks, Xanadu, and Thai Jade.

Daogirl all of these were 1 gallon square pots. I couldn't believe I found Thai Splash either. The Lowes in mobile alabama has three of them left but one looked really rough. Lowes waters them everyday here and puts them under the covered portion of the outdoor garden section. I had told them so many times not to water them everyday but they don't listen. I'm going to check now to see if your right about the Dulcemia....it would be nice to put an actual name with it.

Quaching - I might've misread JJ's Facebook post - I thought someone had asked about that code and he said it was Dulcemia, but now I see the code they asked about was LBR2. I bet you could email him or post on the JJ facebook page and he would be able to tell you pretty easily what it is. I've yet to dig around my Premium Pink to see if there's a trunk code anywhere. It's about to bloom, though, so I'm trying not to mess with it!!

Daogirl you were right. I actually have a LRB2 which JJ said is the Dulcemia. So thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I will label it Dulcemia even though the color doesn't really match what he has on the website. In Alabama we normally get lighter colors at times so maybe it will still darken, even though I really like my pic more then the Dulcemia he has on his website.

None in Austin that I can see. :(

Found some neglected looking desert roses yesterday at HD but that's all. There aren't even any of the generic plumies that Lowes and HD usually get in summer here.

Guess I'll have to do like Allison and make friends with a nursery owner or manager to get a JJ's shipment.

I'm loving my J-105.

Er, and I might've picked up a second Desert Sunrise today that was blooming :D

Here's my Dulcemia - it's got that first-bloom weird petal shape going on. I love the thin pink line running down the center of the petals.

Daogirl I love the colors on your Dulcemia. The colors on mine are really light but I still love the texture on mine too. Wish it had the darker orange though. Thanks for posting your pic so I can see the difference and potential mine has in the future.

Dang you people... Went to lowes in Anaheim today and got a little Purple Jack and Desert Sunrise.
They also had some Inca Gold, el Cabazon or something red, one written "Crazy" on the stem, a couple Jenny, divine, and a couple more I can't remember. They were going fast!

Great haul, Roxanne! I love Temptation so much that I have three of them. I also just picked up Dynamite, actually two of them since I have never seen it before and El Corazon. The HD in San Bernardino had them in full sun and the Dynamites have some sunburned leaves. The HD in Eastvale has them inside and soggy wet, I don't know which is harder on the poor green house raised plants! So far my favorite blooms are the Laredo Princess and the Xquisite that I got from Parkview. Jubilee and Captivate are rather pale and small so far, we'll have to see how they progress.

Is anyone growing the one called "Red Jack"? I would appreciate any photos if possible.

Thanks a bunch.

Been thinking about the red jack as well. Says it is very compact and I am needing some smaller ones.

Ok, Roxanne, you're on! If I see a Laredo Princess it will be yours! Smells great and keeps on blooming.
