The Exotic Plumeria - by Alan Bunch

The Exotic Plumeria - by Alan Bunch
As a life-long fan of Elvis Presley, the movie Blue Hawaii starring Elvis in 1961 had sown the seed for author Alan Bunch's passion for Hawaii and by extension, his passion for plumeria. His first opportunity to visit the Aloha State came in the late 1980's and he immediately became enamored with a funny-looking tree, with flowers growing on perches of tiny limbs whose aroma was intoxicating. After taking many photographs on that first visit, he would later become obsessed with plumeria after discovering through a co-worker, that they would grow in his home state of Florida.

Subsequent trips to Hawaii and later, to the Caribbean, Thailand, and to other parts of Florida would start his collection of plumeria cuttings and what began as a hobby in planting and propagation blossomed into the largest plumeria nursery in the continental United States. Through the years, he has taken thousands of photographs of dozens of varieties of plumeria. This book is the culmination of two years of work that identifies 100 varieties of plumeria and describes their growth habits, as well as information on propagation and care. The result is the first hardcover coffee-table book dedicated to the magnificent plumeria flowering tree.
