Tropical Plants - Video of Plumeria Flowers in Chicago

Welcome All Gardeners,

Please enjoy this testimonial, video, of flowering  
Plumerias, Frangipani, growing year-round in 
Chicago, plant hardiness zone 5.

These plumeria flowers are the result of growing 
plumeria plants from seeds, unrooted cuttings and 
rooted plants.

Plumeria plants not only make wonderful tropical 
plants for outdoors during the warmer months of the 
year, but are also beautiful indoor flowering tropical 
plants during the colder months provided with the 
Proper Growing Conditions.

Petals of plumeria flowers range from wide to 
narrow and elliptical to oval with pointed, rounded 
or tapering tips.

In addition, the petals of plumeria, frangipani
flowers may be highly, moderately, slightly 
overlapped, or not overlapped at all.

The wide variety of colors for plumeria flowers 
include gold, orange, pink, rainbow, red and 
yellow, to name a few.

Plumeria, frangipani, flowers, are known for 
their exquisite fragrances, which include citrus, 
coconut, gardenia, jasmine, and many more.  

Happy Growing,

Growing Pepper Plants - New Varieties For 2013

Welcome All Gardeners,

March has arrived and gardeners are looking ahead 
to the 2013 growing season.

Growing our own pepper plants, either in the ground
or in containers, is not only a lot of fun, but many

markets or in supermarkets.


Every year new pepper varieties, including

Peppers are introduced to the public.

The following is a list of some of the new pepper 
varieties being introduced to the public for the 2013 
growing season....

Cute Stuff Gold Pepper 

Georgia Flame 

Good as Gold 

Ghost (Bhut Jolokia) 

Hungarian Cheese Mix 

La Bomba

Quadrato Asti Giallo 

Red Crest 

Sweet Thing 

Yellow Crest 

I want to point out that there is no financial gain 
for me by introducing these new varieties to you.

'Til Next Time..............Happy Growing!
