Re: Plumeria/brugs

Frigid? Well more so than much of the rest of the country I suppose thank g--! I just heard while watching 24 hour Rita news that Houston is 97 and the water temp in the gulf is 90! How do you people stand it???

Jim Singer, I have seen some very beautiful specimens in Golden Gate Park in SF. That fits right in with your n. Calif. coastal description. I suppose they are cloud forest plants in their native areas? Then how do we explain Zems which look like very nice plants? Thanks Jims. That explains a lot that I didn't know about them.

Hey Zem

By the way, you have some very nice brugs. I really like them and feel they are not appreciated enough. Nice pics you took. Does anybody know where they are native to? They seem to grow in many different climates.

Western South America, Peru, Ecuador etc. Most are higher elevation
plants (but a few are lower-elevation coastal); that's *species*
of course. Being higher elevation, they prefer cooler weather and
so flower best in the time between fall cool-down and first frost.
This was the experience I had when I grew B. suaveolens in the
tomato patch... They should do well for you in your frigid but
frost-free climate...
