So many brilliant blooms ... love that double Tabernaemontana ... didn't know there was a double. You have so many flowers that are so familiar to me ... and many more I'd love for my garden.

Wow, that seems to be a complete collection! Love all your broms. Wish my plumeria were blooming. They are alive, post-freeze, and have bushed out nicely again, but no sign of buds yet. Did you protect yours this past winter?

Grower Jim said...

Floridagirl: I don't protect much during the winter but I did protect those Plumerias. The ones left to their own defenses froze to the ground and are just starting to come back.
