Welcome to the Southern California Plumeria Society

We’re a friendly group of plumeria plant enthusiasts based in San Diego, California. We host free meetings, a plumeria cutting sale, a Hawaiian Plumeria Festival and a members only Hawaiian luau.

20th Anniversary, July 2019


Plumeria ohana, with great regrets, we’re cancelling all in-person events for 2020, including the SCPS Hawaiian Plumeria Festival traditionally held over Labor Day weekend. The health and safety of our community must come first, and in looking at our resources and spaces, we simply can’t keep all our vendors, volunteers, entertainers, and guests safe, particularly at an event as large and varied as our festival.

We look forward to hosting our July and August meetings virtually, but as a 100% volunteer organization, we don’t have the capacity to offer a quality online festival in any facet: flower show, plant sale, or entertainment. We look forward to gathering with you in safer times in 2021. Mahalo nui loa.

July 12, 2020 Virtual Meeting

We miss seeing all our plumeria friends! Although we can’t be together physically, we invite you join us on July 12th for our virtual July meeting.

The meeting starts at 1 pm.

Talkin’ Plumeria Story with Bud Guillot

In Hawaii, to “talk story” means to rekindle old times, or to talk with old friends. In this month’s virtual meeting, we’ll show video excerpts of Bud Guillot “talkin’ plumeria story” with his long time friend, Irene Jones. 

Bud Guillot is a plumeria pioneer here in Southern California. He was deeply involved in the genesis of the South Coast Plumeria Society and was a frequent speaker at the budding Southern California Plumeria Society. Bud’s stories are informative, entertaining and laugh out loud funny. You won’t want to miss them!

Members will receive an email with a link to register on Zoom. Zoom meeting participants can ask questions and receive answers in real time.

The meeting will also be live streamed to Facebook.
