Surf and Plumerias????

rox146September 14, 2013

Ventura's annual 2 day surf/beach festival started today. Rode our bikes to get there early and buy some of Clare Corre's GORGEOUS plumerias...potted/rooted and cuttings. She also makes incredible plumeria jewelry.

I scored the tall 3 tipped 1 gallon is J-105 for $25 buckaroos, the other 1 gallon is Dr. Kukiat's that he named Clare Corre after her for $45, and the 2 beefy cuttings are California Sally which I did not have and unbelievable Loi Kratong for $15 a big beefy cutting each with flowers all over. Loi has easily over 80 blossoms on it so it is a very happy bloomer.

Sun, surf and plumerias...WOW! roxanne

Those are gorgeous plumeria, Roxanne. You got a great price on the J-105! I just bought a Clare Corre from Doug Jones of Pacific Plumeria because it looks so beautiful in pictures. I hope it blooms next year. You should definitely go back and get more stuff!

Gorgeous, Rox! I can't believe you didn't have CA Sally before! She's becoming one of my favorites, and is still putting out a flower here and there.

Loi Kratong is another beauty! Sounds like you had a great day.
