I really really want an Embers but I have heard of some people having difficulties with them.

BTW, I love that Purple Jaded Dragon over on the side bar of Recent Photos. Very pretty!

I have an Embers from there (Toba's Fire) . It was rather pricey but after driving a couple of hours to get there I wasn't coming home empty handed Hilarious! .. Had gone to get an Orange, Kapalua but it was very expensive and there were quite a few bad ones in pots and the blooms are VERY small on the live plant so I decided not to risk it. The one that really caught my eye was the Embers one, ID'd as Toba's Fire. It has a very brilliant bloom. It was multiple tipped and rooted and has flourished in a pot. It is one of my more prized plumerias. Worth the risk IMO.

Hope this help,

If you really REALLY want one you will either have to pay Alan's overinflated prices, or wait until it's offered on the general market.
Embers aka Toba's Fire is stunning and a good bloomer for me. I hate the fact that Alan renames everything...

Dang, that makes me want to cry. There are only a couple of varieties at this point that I really REALLY want, and Embers aka Toba's Fire is one of them. Fuzzy does have one up for bid, but it's no telling how high that will go. The last time I decided I was going to go for it, I was depressed the rest of the night. Ridiculous, I know. LOL

The two of you are so lucky. Those pics are stunning! Drooling

I have ordered from Exotic Plumeria and while their prices appear to be high, the price of shipping is included in the plant price.

Thanks, Printmaster, but that is a different variety. Pretty though!

RobertB - I probably will contact you next year!
