These were outside one of the resort's restaurants in Puerta Vallarta where we were last week. Wish I could have stayed another week to see these when they opened. I bet they will be spectacular!!!!

I agree Will the blooms be red? We have something that looks like this in a neighboring yard, but the blooms are white. When the fruits form they are brilliant red and look like Christmas balls on it.

Not a clue...........since they are in Mexico and I am in Wisconsin, I guess i will never know unless I go back when they are blooming. And as crappy cold as it is here now, that might be something I should consider. LOLOL

I know what you mean. We were in Florida not long ago drooling over tropical plants. Now I'm back in snow country.

Well, yeah, but at least YOU could have brought some back with you. I didn't have that luxury.

I would love to try and grow a tulip tree in a large pot. The blooms on them are gorgeous.

It sounds like you might have to start looking into Bonsai, Anna.

I will have to look into bringing plants back on planes. If there aren't any strict rules, I'll try that next time! I agree that bonsai would be a lot of fun. I should have started that years ago instead of just buying books about them! I'm thinking I could maybe bonsai some Adeniums since they are fairly fast at growing.

the depicted Mexican cactus could be a Neobuxbaumia euphorbioides.
