Hey Bob,
You can try the various vendors on ebay from Thailand. Their selection of plumeria is really great especially the Variegated and the dwarf types. Now, a few nurseries there are concentrating on the dwarf form which max at 4-5ft in height and full of blooms. I have 1 type with me and it's really cute.
In terms of ginger related plants, they also have a great selection of cucurma's and species. These don't do too well over here as they are seasonal and go dormant in their summer months. When I grow them here in our climate which is very much wetter, they keep on growing without rest resulting in smaller blooms. Then they will finally knock off to a deep sleep and regenerate with big blooms. I feel bad for them in this situation.

Tog Tan has sadly suddenly passed away 6/16/09. We will miss you Tog Tan.
