Plumeria expert Mike Atkinson shares his knowledge on growing and propagating the many varieties of plumerias that thrive in our Mediterranean climate.
Plumerias LOVE San Diego! Often thought to be native to Hawaii, plumerias are actually native to southern Mexico, Central America, and South America. Their low-maintenance, low-water, and amazing blooms and fragrances make them the ideal complement to our Southern California gardens. Mike will show us various types of plumerias, explain their fertilization needs, tell us which plants make good companions in the garden, and give advice on their general care and selection.
Mike Atkinson and his wife, Stacy, have been growing plumerias for over twenty-one years in La Mesa. He regularly speaks about plumerias around southern California.
We invite you to bring flowers from your blooming plumerias for the plant display table.
Doors open at 6 PM with the presentations beginning at 6:45 PM.
