I loved the bomiliades but I don't care for these flowers.

Who would have thought of combining these almost maroon Ti-plants with the fiery orange of the bromilades.

The shrimp plants were huge.

Oophs!!! Caught me finching some seeds.

Does anybody know what the orange flowered plant is just ahead of me? I think I have a close up also.

The leaves reminded me of oleander but the flower is out of this world.

Notice the tall dead looking trees? They are wiliwili trees and used all over the islands for wind breaks. A few years ago a wasp was imported onto 1 island by mistake and it spread to all the islands and has killed all the wiliwilis.

Believe this or not but the row of trees behind that lady are plumerias and at least 15'-20' tall.

Does anybody know what the trees are with the banyon roots behind the fish food sign? It looks similar to dracenas.

That looks like paradise. I don't know the name of the mystery tree, but surely someone will come along that does. You must have been in ecstasy with all the fabulous plants. Hope you brought lots home.

Beautiful pictures Jerri, thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Hi All,
Jeri, wonderful view. I know of only one plant you've mentioned. The Plumeria. Did you take some cutting home? They root very easily here. Love our warm summer climate, but has to overwinter indoor.

I was luckly to have got some cuttings from a friendly local Nursery. Had success rooting this plant. From rooting, to blooming time within one growing season. I've the Pink, and White with Yellow center. They're irresistable.

More pics. from the tropical Paradise, Please.

Lakeland / Memphis, TN(Zone 7a)

Great job on the pictures Jeri ! They are just beautiful, and I am sure even more beautiful in person. What a wonderful time you must have had. A gardener's paradise !

Central, LA(Zone 8b)

Welcome Lily_love to MSG I'm glad that you enjoyed them. I do have more pictures it just takes so long to upload them. I'll do some more later. I promise!!!

Bonnie so good to hear from you. Yes it was paradise for sure. The sights were unbelievable. I wanted cuttings of everything but was well behaved and didn't. I did collect a few seeds.

Plumeria is fairly easy to grow from seed also. It does not come true so you may get something awesome and brand new.

Loretta

Central, LA(Zone 8b)

I bought some cuttings of plumeria and one stick was just hanging on a plumeria tree that was calling my name. The seeds I collected were palm, autograph tree, Afican tulip tree and banyon tree. We'll see if any come up.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Golly! What lovely pictures. I am always amazed at how big certain plants can get...in their correct zone. Thanks for sharing.
