Anyway, who is planning to go on Saturday?

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Dang it, Lynn, I have to work! Otherwise I'd go pick up a Rhonda. :)

Are you going to take your camera?

I didn't think about bringing a camera but now that you mentioned it... I will! I will see if DH can shoot pics while I browse. I just wish there was a way for me to contact the sellers that have what I want so I can pre-paid and not stressed out. Some folks on FB were saying that they are planning to "camp out". I don't know what that means... like camping out over night or what?? That's crazy! I was thinking getting there when it opens but now I don't know.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Yes, like camping out over night! LOL
Actually, I don't know if they stay overnight or just get there super early in the morning. But I've seen pics on different websites about earlybirds.

You don't need to stress out. Knowing you, there will be plenty that will please you even if it's not on your list. Just follow your nose! :)

Can't wait to see some pics!
Wonder if they are going to do a flower show?

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

What a list. I am glad, I live too far, so I am not tempted to go. Do they have a sale in the spring too? Barbra

Good suggestion! I shall follow my nose, LOL. I think this event is two days long so they do have the Flower Show on both days as well as hula dancing etc. It should be fun for the whole family. I'm training my kids to guard my plants while I shop! LOL. If everyone is camping out early I might have to get a hotel and come the night before or something. I'm sure if my family didn't think I was crazy before they will now!

Barbra I think the Spring sale is for cuttings only. And this one is for rooted Plants. I missed the Cuttings Sale this year... might as well or I would have killed them all too. I will go next spring so I can pick up some cuttings to practice. :)

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Yep, get a hotel room then let your DH get up early and go save your place in line. Men... gotta love 'em!
at least they're good for something :)

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

I would love the flower show... and the music and dance performance. Lynn, I bet you have a flower you could enter. Go outside and look! LOL

Could someone please try and check out JJ's Safari? The name suggests to me yellow/bronze/orange and I would love to know. I would ask Lynn but she will have her family with her, plus her long list = hands full! LOL

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

No-clue, thank goodness you missed the cutting sale. Next year you will have all this knowledge and have 100% success on rooting cuttings. I really did have a good year at rooting cuttings. I did loose some, but it was because I put the newly rooted cuttings in full sun. I will always use the gritty mix for cuttings, but once established will replant them in potting soil. I can't wait until the spring to start all over again. I have learned so much on this forum. Thanks everyone, for sharing your knowledge. Barbra

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Hi Barbra. I had been using the gritty mix to root cuttings, too, and like using it. Now I'm out of ingredients but will get some for next year. Like you, I will pot them up in MG and perlite when the time comes. The few that I did pot up to the gritty mix are doing just fine but I really prefer not to use it for the larger plants.

I have Safari... got it from JJ's a few months ago when she was barely rooted. John kept telling me to break off the larger leaves to promote more growth but I didn't listen. Well his are growing well and mine is like "failure to thrive". LOL

If he has his pictures there I will snap a photo for you ok?

Plumie girl - I didn't know that sellers get first dips! That's not fair!! Hmmm... I'm going to have to figure out how to get in first then. :)

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Lynn - try to locate the bathrooms, then check to see if the windows are unlocked. LOL

Sorry to be such a pest but I've been looking forward to this sell for a long time, (LOL) so a pic would be great if you can swing it. When you think of Safari, what colors come to mind for that name? I see a Tinkerbell on the list. In my mind it should be yellow... because Tinkerbell had blonde hair. Tiger should be orange.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

I want Amazing & Artic Sun. But, living in Texas I can't make the sale.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

  • Posted by No-Clue So Cal Zone 10 (My Page) on
    Tue, Aug 28, 12 at 21:44

No fears gang... I will take pictures of everything I can get my hands on. :) If all else fails I will swipe John's catalogue. J/K! But I will take pics I promise.

Mona, for some reason I think Safari is red! I know I mentioned I was looking for red and some how I came home w/ Safari.

Tiger should be dark pink/red. But I will be sure to take pictures. I don't know what Amazing or Artic Sun will look like but if he has pics I will take some.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

I saw Amazing in late July at JJ's. He said it wasn't available until September. I asked him to place me on the waiting list. I didn't think to take a pic. dahhhhh!

Lonnie do you remember what Amazing looks like? Fragrance?

Will you be going to the Sale?

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

It was a 3" wide bloom, with cream petals and red/orange center. I can not remember the fragrance.
It was a small plant, but beautiful flower.
I emailed John this morning to see if it was available for shipment. Not going to sale, live in TX. I was out there end of July for vacation.

Oh wow that sounds beautiful!! If he doesn't ship let me know and I'll be happy to pick it up and ship to you.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

For those who want a reference doc, I've put together an unofficial guide. I'll also have some pix of JJ new varieties on my phone.

See you there - stop by and say hi.... Diana

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

so the secret is root a bunch of generic plumeria, sign up as a dealer, go in early, buy what you really want, sell your cuttings/seedlings cheap and get out.

3,000 visitors! wow! It`s gonna be like a concert, plumeria addicts camped out overnight.

Ya`ll have a great time and hope everyone gets all the plants they want.
Tally HO!

I have been told by more than one sellers that if I don't get there by 9am the line will wrap around the building.

I can't believe I'm even thinking of going there by 8am. That's TWO hours before opening time! But at least the hotel is only 2.4 miles away so I'm going to have DH drop me off so I can get in line while they go get me breakfast. I should have signed up as a volunteer or something. LOL.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

I'm reading the SCPS sale bulletin and noticed a discrepency in the description of the Guillot's Sunset. Early on it says it is cold sensitive, then later on it says it is cold tolerant. I'm curious as I live around 1021' elevation in the San Gabriel Valley and it gets very close to frost maybe once or twice a winter. I'm thinking of an inground plant for the future and I have seen some Celadine's nearby, one is about 20' tall and wide so at least they must be cold tolerant.


RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties


Your list makes me shake with envy... : )

I look at everyone listed and see the ones that i would like to have ..

You are so fortunate to be able to atttend the show!

Hello to all that are going and have a great time..

Bill, James Diana, Iso, Erika, Jen, Lynn. Think of all of us and please take pics.

We will be there in spirit and im looking forward to seeing your pics..

Once again,, Thank you1! : )

Take care and tell everyone that i said Hi!!!


RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

8am? That's crazy talk! These aren't one-of-a-kind, never to be seen again plants...for the most part, anyway. Yes, the line to enter is long and some varieties are limited, but you can score big, and sanely.

Hints: Make a gotta-have list, and a budget, but always leave room for serendipity. Prowl the big plants in the courtyard while you wait.

Volunteers have a cross-reference list of plants by vendor, and can point you in the right direction. When you find one you want, ask the vendor to hold it for you (bring tags or bright ribbons), make a note to yourself, and go hunt the next.

Relax, have fun, and if both checkout lines are too long, put all your plants in the holding room and have lunch across the promenade, check out the flower show or visit the beautiful gardens.

Even tho the queues are long, they move pretty quickly - the hard part is holding a 10 lb. pot for too long. Bring a cart or tote bag.

Remember - no Credit or Debit cards!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties


Thanks for the great reference guide. I appreciate your hard work and I will keep it handy. I found that I have a few duplicates because of AKAs. ;o(
Darn it! I could have bought something I didn't already have!

I'm looking forward to seeing some of the forum gang again. It was nice putting faces with names at JJ's open house.

PS: I have a nice picture of you and Bud @ JJ's. If I can remember I will print one out and bring it for you.


RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Thanks, Jan. The aka list is probably the hardest thing to maintain, and gets even more complicated due to Thai and Oz varieties. Would love to see the pic - can you email it?

After I posted these hints, I realized I misspoke. The official holding area is post-sale, called 'will-call'. See

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties


I haven't heard from John. He is more than likely getting ready for the sale.
If you do see a 1-3 gal, I'll definantely want it.
Let me know if you find one, and we'll settle up.
I will owe you big time!!

So 8am is too early? LOL... ok fine I'll be there at 8:15am how's that? Oh and I also have a pic of you, Bill and Irene at JJ's Open House too. Give me your email address and I'll send you a copy.

Lonnie, John said he will call me later today... so I will look for a Rhonda for Mona and an Amazing for you. Anybody else? He accepts PayPal so I will arrange for you guys to call him. I'm actually about 1.5 hrs from him and I don't drive due to my peripheral neuropathy so it's probably best to have him ship to you directly. Or it will be a while before I can hitch a ride to pick them up. Let me know if that works. In a way it's a good thing... or I would be at JJ's every week!

I have been dying to go see Doug Jones, Mike P and Danny K and admire their plumeria patches as well. Bud even said I could visit his garden... but alas I can't drive! So it will have to be some other time when DH has time off.

But I'm super excited about this Plant Sale this weekend though... so that will tie me over for a while! :)

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

That will work. Thank you.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Does anyone ever have the problem of thinking they have replied to a post only to find out later they didn't? LOL

Lynn - that would be great, thank you, but does that mean you won't be able to personally choose mine for me? :) Kidding, but I know you have excellent plant buying skills.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties


I also live in the San Gabriel valley at about the same elevation and I have a GS planted in the ground in a raised bed. It was a relatively mature plant when I got it, and I planted it in august of last year (I think?). It went dormant pretty swiftly last winter, but never had any issues as far as I know. It's partially sheltered by a much taller tree, which may have taken the edge off the coldest nights, but it had no tip die-back or black tip or anything. I did tent it with frost cloth in January and February, though. It woke up pretty fast this year, and now is hugely leafed out with 3 inflos. So, I would say it does pretty well in this climate - you may just want to take some precautions on the nights when it gets into the mid and upper 30s. Personally, I love this plumeria - it's really striking to look out the window and see it in bloom.

In contrast, I have a Cal Sally planted about 3 feet to the right of it, and that plant did have tip die-back and black tip issues, and I ended up hacking off 3 big hunks of branch to save it from rot. I realize their micro-climates might be slightly different, since the Cal Sal is much more exposed, but overall the GS did 100x better over the winter. I'm definitely going to have to frost cloth the Cal Sal earlier this year if I don't want it spending the entire summer recovering from the previous winter!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Thanks for that info. All of my plants are still small, but by next year I think I will try one them in the ground to see how it does, I have several months to think about just the right area to put it.

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

What did ya get? What did ya get???
Tally HO!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Well, I did not have the opportunity to call John today and I fear of the same tomorrow. With any luck he will still have a Rhonda come Friday morning when I am off from work and can give him a call. I've got my fingers crossed!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum, but on my third year of plumerias. We went to the show last year and this year. Since we are kinda new, we aren't to picky about which one/type yet so we went on Sunday at 2:00, so there was only two hours left of the show. Let me tell you last year there was plenty to pick from, this year, there was almost nothing left! JJ was the only one who had quite a few left. So that being said a couple vendors were offering to make a deal with the couple that they had left. My husband and I each went with $50.00 to spend, of course we brought the checkbook just in case!! Right away my husband struck a pretty good deal with two of the larger plants that were outside on the patio. The seller marked them both down right away for a total of 45.00 for both, one white and yellow, one yellow and white, both with current inflows and both having an inflow about to open!

So then it's my turn, we have plenty that are one to two years old, I kinda wanted one larger one and no more white and yellow. I already have three JJ's... but they do seem to be my strongest plants so why not another one, again a lot of small ones, a couple larger ones for $100, but that over my budget.. so I was going to settle for one for $40.00, I don't even remember what is was, and John saw me and said, no don't get that one, take this one, it was a Rio, with an inflow about to bloom, it was marked $55.00, but he marked it down to $40.00. Still white, but has colored edges, he showed me in the catalog. So I was happy.

Then I came across the Aztec Gold, I loved the smell, but they only had a little one left, but the vendor automatically took $5.00 off for me.

So for going at the last minute we are very happy with our afternoon at the sale. We left at exactly 100 with a good group of plants.

The two on the left are the ones my husband got for a total of 45.00, the one in the back is a JJ Divine for my mother in law, she loves mine, the little one in the front is the Aztec Gold, and the one on the right is the JJ Rio!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Nice deals Angela! You'll have to tell us all about Rio's color and scent when it blooms, ok?

I so badly want to be able to go to one of those sales but since I live on the opposite coast, I just have to wait for No Clue to go, then when she comes back I hang on every word that she writes! LOL

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

First of all -- WELCOME!
Great story and purchases!
Keep us posted on all your plants, and we love picutres!!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Good score! So sorry you are now addicted, there is no cure you know.

Moonie, ya`ll are just gonna have to take a vaca to the beach when Clear Lake has their sale. We`ll go to the beach, buy plumerias and eat shrimp at a restaurant over the Gulf of Mexico.
Tally HO!

RE: So CA Plumeria Sale Varieties

Moonie - Thank you! I was wrong, when I was out looking at them tonight, it's called a Roxy, should bloom by this weekend!

Lonnie - Thank you, it's nice to be able to share and know other people excited about them!
