I'm kind of blushing *Blush* today with a tad of pride after seeing this article in the monthly newsletter of the American Public Gardens Association! A great feeling of accomplishment, and more than a dream come true, since I could not possibly have dreamt this!

New NAPCC Plumeria Collection at Naples Botanical Garden

We are happy to welcome Naples Botanical Garden whose Plumeria Collection achieved NAPCC recognition in November. Comprising over 300 species and cultivars, this collection includes 75% of the 277 Plumeria cultivars registered by the Plumeria Society of America. The Society sought out Naples Botanical Garden to serve as its national collection, and donated plants – in many cases from the original breeder – to augment its holdings. The Plumeria Collection curator, Hetty Ford, has been involved in the Plumeria Society for a decade and initiated this successful collaboration. She is a local expert in cultivated varieties and is actively involved in the international Plumeria community. Brett Adams, curator of collections, also serves on the board of Belize Botanic Gardens and will help facilitate the replication of the Plumeria Collection in Belize. This represents a remarkable achievement by this young botanical garden begun in 1993.
