Hibiscus have undergone a phenomenal change over the past 20 years. From the iconic cute red blooms and tall lanky bushes with small leaves they have been hybridized into massive show stopping multi-colored works of art the likes of which are not matched in the flower world. And now with plants that are well branched with large beautiful lush leaves they are perfect for landscaping your home. Come check out what we think is extraordinary and never gets old!

Meetings consist of live information sessions from growing masters and one of a kind auctions & raffles with some very hard to get exotic hibiscus plants. You will be glad you took a few hours out of your monthly schedule to spend time with us.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA’S WORLD FAMOUS HYBRIDIZERS
We are so very fortunate to have the premier exotic hibiscus hybridizers here in our own backyard! Charles and Cindy Black have been growing and hybridizing hibiscus for over 30 years. They are pioneers in their field as they are the only ones to have created a gene pool of strong, vigorous hibiscus plants with huge blooms that bloom constantly.
We highly recommend exploring their website which is a wealth of information and it is the place to buy your dream hibiscus plants.
