Not sure if I misunderstood the video but I was hoping to download the catalog.

They have good varieties but are overpriced, in my opinion, and they have a nasty habit of renaming already named cultivars.

For instance their 'Confetti' is a registered cultivar known as Barbados Showgirl.

You mean 'Barbados Showgirl' http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Confetti+plumeria...

I've been there a couple times and bought three items before I knew about BBB, Florida colors and All Things Plants. I agree about the price but they did gave me a great deal on my 'Puu Kahea'.

No problem Hetty.

I wanted that orange too but too expensive for me. I do have an orange that I love even more..the Giant Aussie Orange I purchased from BBB registered in PSA as Giant Aussie Sunburst. I can't wait for it to bloom!

I saw a picture by Lopaka in Flickr and it looks stunning!

Yes...I drool everytime he post pictures of his plummie blooms. In his Flickr he mentioned he was using his own special fertilizer mix.

This is the Giant Aussie Sunburst picture on BBB's website:
https://www.bradsbudsandblooms.com/popup_image.php?pID=703&i...

These are great prices, I think because mine was just a single tip rooted for same price as the 2 tip branch they are offering now.

I proposed this to be added in the database, so I can upload the pictures I took this morning:

entire plant (see plant tag)


leaves


I hardly doubt this will bloom this year but I am pretty sure it is worth the wait!
