The Plumeria Society of South Texas
A unique calendar filled with plumeria blooms from our plumeria grove and from the plumeria gardens of our members.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve our collection. The collection is located at the South Botanical Garden and a aNature Center. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
The PSST plumeria collection was in place at the Botanical Gardens prior to the 1996 dedication of the Botanical Gardens Exhibit House, Orchid House, and Visitor's Center. It was established with more than 100 plumerias from the member's personal gardens. In 1996, the collection was moved to its current more prominent location around the Willoughby Viewing Platform. The Willoughby Viewing Platform was dedicated on September 14, 2016 in honor of Lucian Willoughby, who passed away in 2004 and was a guiding force in the Plumeria Society. The display grew with donations and purchases until it had over 200 plumerias, making it, at one time, the largest display in the continental United States. The collection consisted of approximately 98 large trees before the freeze of 2016. We are busy rebuilding the collection after massive losses. The collection is on display from early March until mid November. It is in full bloom by mid June and is still blooming in November when the collection is stored for the winter.
The South Texas Botanical Garden offers the perfect refuge for our plumerias. There is plenty to do and see at the South Texas Botanical Gardens especially the beautiful blooms of our plumeria trees. There is plenty of shade and plenty of space to spread out a blanket or set out some chairs and relax outside in the gardens.
