How can you help Pollinators?

Pollinators need each of us to plant and protect habitat whether in our back yards or public spaces. These “pollinator patches” collectively create habitat corridors that provide vital resources to pollinators such as milkweed for monarchs and nectar-rich flowers for hummingbirds during migration and breeding. Creating more pollinator-friendly habitat protects other wildlife as well. Native plants work best for pollinator gardens. Our knowledgeable staff at Tom’s Thumb can help you with your plant selections. Consider eliminating pesticides or reducing the amount and using organic alternatives.

Jungle Jack Plumeria

plumeria

Jungle Jack Plumeria is in at Tom’s Thumb Nursery!

The fragrance of brightly colored Plumeria blooms evokes memories of tropical vacations and warm summer days in the garden. The colors of Plumeria (or Frangipani, as they are also known) range from vibrant rainbows to brilliant white, and each bloom emits a lovely fragrance.

Why is Jungle Jack Plumeria so special?

They come directly from Jungle Jack’s 100 acre Thailand gardens. Every year they offer new varieties that cannot be found anywhere else.

From their website:

  • Quality: We believe our offerings represent the finest plumeria available anywhere, grown in specially designed soil media and delivered with the utmost care.
  • Authenticity: All of our cuttings are individually tagged/labeled at the time of being cut to ensure that what you order is true to the tag.
  • Ease: If you have purchased directly from overseas before, you know the hassles involved with import permits, USDA inspection, and the like. Jungle Jack’s Palms, Plumeria & More manages all aspects of plant importation so you don’t have to.
  • Trust: We are an established company with a long list of reputable clients who attest to our ability to deliver what we promise.
  • ​The Story: When you purchase from us, you’re not only buying a plumeria, you’re buying a small piece of an amazing story.
