The World's Finest Plumerias begins...
Jungle Jack's Plumerias started in 1986 with a small packet of seeds 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 originally focused on palm introductions, cycads
and other exotics on eleven acres in north San Diego County, California. Over time we developed a reputation for
premium quality plants, backed up with customer service grounded in integrity and personal commitment.
After positive feedback and encouragement from our customers, we began growing and selling Plumeria 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 our greenhouses when the blooms on thousands of plants 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 30 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, excellent bloom production on an attractive tree.
Our greatest focus is the development of a complete line of miniature plumeria, which we believe offers incredible potential for both the avid collector and casual enthusiast alike. Our miniature plumerias have an amazing propensity to bloom with full sized flowers.

Our unique varieties include Divine, Valkyrie, J105, California Sunset, Gina, Purple Jack, Obsession and 200 more unique varieties.
