Florida advice: Where to find plumerias?

shelia__greenthumb(6)June 12, 2014

Hello Florida plumeria growers. I will be vacationing in the West Palm Beach area. I would love to see some beautiful plumerias. Please advise where to go and see and smell some. I'm trying to grow them in West Virginia from seeds. I have my first inflo this year after waiting 6 years.

Its a couple of hours south if you get into traffic (very likely) on the 95 but Florida Colors is in South Dade.

I would google botantical gardens in the WPB area and call them to see if they have any for sale.

Congrats on your inflo Shelia, that's so exciting!!! Great job on the seedlings. I don't have any info on where to go in Florida but you may luck out and see some around naturally. K has a good idea about the botanical gardens too. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Naples has a very good collection of plumerias in their botanical gardens.

Just got back from my vacation in Florida. I was very
lucky I got to see several different types of plumeria. Kim was right, the local botanical garden had some real beauties.
I was able to see plumerias growing in the neighborhood where I was staying. I was able to smell the wonderful fragrance they have. Some of my plumerias have grown to tall for me to store in my house, so I'm trying to grow cuttings, they have leaves now.
Thanks for the great advice. Had a wonderful vacation
On Singer Island. I loved all of the southern flowers!!!
