Jungle Jack's visit!
Thought you all might like to see what I found when I made a trip to JJ's in Vista, CA last week.
Unfortunately, I was too early for most blooms but there were lots of CA Sunsets blooming (peachy!) and enough others to keep me busy sniffing. There are two greenhouses of plumies, one with 2-gallon plants and one with 5-gallons. Most of these were in the 2-gallon area and were labeled "Premium Pink" or "Premium White", etc. It was a bit chaotic and many plants had no label at all.
Here's what you see when you walk in:
Like getting lost in a fragrant forest:
Here's a close-up of Divine, which smells, well, divine, like jasmine:
And Mini-white, which had a fainter smell:
There were also adeniums, yum!
I couldn't find out what this one was:
Yet another unlabeled pink:
This one I would've recognized anywhere, without a label, J105:
This isn't Inca Gold, but another beautiful and very large yellow, labeled "Premium Yellow", I think:
Can you believe I walked out of there empty-handed?! No Ginas were in bloom and that was the one I really wanted, so I resisted, plus I was being rushed by an impatient little one. Guess I'll just have to get something else at the show instead--I'll leave the ball and chain behind this time, LOL!
