Aside from this, I agree with previous statements about staying away from grafted cuttings. If you ever hear the term "unpure", it refers to a plant that has been grafted. Pure means it has it's own root system. Most experienced Plumeria plantsman will tell you, and you can read this from several experts writings, it is not only unnecessary, it is detrimental to the plants longevity. In addition, problems can occur with Cambium layers not lining up properly effecting the plants health long term and interferring with the highway that is the transport system back to the roots. You don't see this until years down the road. You should just let the plumeria grow under it's own root system. Grafts are also unsightly, in my opinion. Read Jim Little's book on more about this. He is a legend in the hobby and a real nice guy.

Still no refund from these guys. One consistent experience is that they will say that they will do something and then you never hear from them again until weeks later when you remind them what they are supposed to do for you. This occurred several times with my orders. They are very, very slow, totally lost and incompetent. Save your hard earned money.

In 2004 I emailed and requested availability for over 30 cultivars of plumeria graftings that I wished to purchase for a garden design. They ignored this and two subsequent email requests for information and stock availability. I simply moseyed on down the road.

After reviewing the other comments about this nursery, (are you folks in some sort of club or something). I can only say that I had a very similar experience to Glenda. I do not know how the term "professionals" can be thrown around so easily. It is in all facets of life so I guess it would be here too.

It just goes to show that you can't always believe what you read on these sites. This past summer and early fall some plants that I had ordered from this company finally bloomed after more than two years. Out of the six I ordered four bloomed, but they were not the flower they were supposed to be. I now have lost two years of time to find out they did not know the difference. They were not even close. I was very disappointed when I opened the package upon receiving the order. They all had puny looking tips which I guess were grafted on tips of other plumeria or possibly seedlings. I paid for what I thought were particular varieties only to get shrivelled up plants with ugly scars. If I pay for something I want the whole thing I paid for, not simply six inch slivers.I guess you get what you pay for. Needless to say I will never order from this company again.
