This past Saturday I attended my first plumeria show and sale, dragging DH with me. He was so surprised to see many cars in parking lot and people coming out with loads of plumerias.
There were several tables displaying various Plumaria blooms in glasses of water.

We both liked the 'raspberry sundae' Lovey dubby but found the cost was prohibitive $50. This one is for my son:

I promised DH beforehand that I wasn't going to purchase any - so I will have to figure out how to get that 'Raspberry sundae' into my yard...and then the 'Texas Aggie'.

Raspberry Sundae is really popular. Why don't you start with Texas Agge? Please buy it, so that I don't. It smells like grape.

They were out of 'texas aggie' too. Maybe next time. I do like the dark reds.

Welcome! Welcome! @Carrotsz!

Where was this sale that I missed? WAIT. Don't tell me. I don't need to be lured into more trees! I'd have to park the car in the street if I did!

The Plumeria Society of America has two sales a year where members can sell to people. There were maybe 20ish people selling plumeria ranging from $3 for tiny seedlings to huge plants for $100+. They had one in Seabrook in June and the second in July in Rosenberg.
