We’re very sad to report that the SCPS has lost long time member and grower Greg Silverthorn. We were notified in mid-May that Greg had passed away. Our deepest condolences go out to Mary Ann and the rest of the Silverthorn family. Click here to read Mike Atkinson’s warm remembrance and a reprise of Kim Schultz’s 2011 interview.

Ask the Experts Plumeria Panel

Ever wonder:

  • “What is this thing on my Plumeria?”, or
  • “What do I do with my Plumeria now?”, or
  • “What in the world did this to my Plumeria?”, or
  • “Why is my Plumeria doing this?”

Then this “Ask the Experts Plumeria Panel” for you!

We would like to solicit your questions and accompanying photos, just send them to info@socalplumeriasociety.com.  Please provide any other pertinent information such as age of the Plumeria, variety of the Plumeria (if known), general location (coastal, desert, El Cajon, South Bay, etc.), or anything you think would be helpful for the experts to know.  

The Zoom meeting starts at 1 pm. Members will receive an e-newsletter with a link to register. Non-members can watch on Facebook Live.
