The World's Finest Plumerias begins...
Jungle Jack's Plumerias starts in 1986 with a small packet of seed from Hawaii, followed by other collections
from around the world. What began as Jack Ingwersen's personal garden in Thailand has been transformed
into one of the best plumeria collections in the world, and the source of the finest plumerias anywhere.
Founded in 1995 by John and Christina Ingwersen, Jungle Jack’s focused on palm introductions, cycads, and
other exotics on eleven acres in north San Diego County, California. Over time we developed a reputation
quality plant products, backed up with customer service grounded in integrity and personal commitment.
We began growing and selling Plumeria about 9 years ago, and now our stock exceeds 30,000 plants.
Compared to all the other plants we grow, we have more fun with our plumeria than anything else. It’s a pure
delight to venture out into a greenhouse when the blooms from more than 160 varieties begin to open.
All of our plumeria originate in our own growing grounds in northern Thailand. Each and every variety is our own hybrid, developed over the last 29 years in total isolation from any of the Hawaiian or Mexican cultivars now on the market. This has given our collection its own distinctive characteristics, namely, more rounded leaves and a compact growth habit.
Our greatest focus is the development of a complete line of miniature plumeria, which we believe offer incredible potential for both the avid collector and casual enthusiast alike. Our miniature plumerias have an amazing propensity to bloom with full sized flowers.
