A few of the more classics

plumatherapy(so cal 10a)July 16, 2011

I know we are all getting enthralled with all the new sexy cultivars flooding our senses and I do love them. Just

wanted to share a few of the more classics I have blooming. The past week has been much cooler here in so cal

thus less intense color

Kimo

sally moragne

mary helen eggenberger

lava flow

moragne #93

moragne #23

Hey, you worked out how to post multiple photos--that's great! They're beautiful, especially MHE and Lava Flow. LF is so tempting for me to buy! You're fortunate to have so many short plants blooming.

I agree that we get caught up in the latest and greatest new cultivars and sometimes forget the older proven ones.

Thanks for the pick-me-up!

Beautiful!!!!! Especially the Lava Flow which is one of my absolute favorite plumies...BUT, I LOVE them all!!!!

They all look so nice & healthy even in your cool weather!!!! Good thing these beauties are sun/heat loving trees, because we have had plenty of that here!!! So many gorgeous blooms this year!!!!

Classics are a 'Good Thing'!!!! Thanks for posting your pics! :)

very lovely pictures. I lost my #93 a while back but it looked just like yours and it made me recall it. Bill

They are classics for a reason! I always hold off on buying the latest varieties until they have proven themselves by reading reviews over a few years.

Congratulations! They are all stunning!

My wife and I really love our 'Kimo'. It has been a good consistent bloomer for us here in Virginia. It blooms for us every year. Many varieties don't always do that. We have more heat, so colors are more intense.

Now I have to get a 'Mary Helen Eggenberger'. LOL!

Great photos!
