Congrats to Malou Lopez-Urbano!
Best of Show Winner for Orange County Fair Flower Show
This is a big deal as long time member Malou won for Best of Show against all other flower categories at the OC Fair! She beat out hundreds of other flower bloom entries including hibiscus to take home the grand prize. What an accomplishment! Malou has been growing hibiscus for many years and produces exceptional blooms on a daily basis. Just when you think her blooms can’t get better they continually do as you can see on our Facebook page: SCHS Facebook Page
We hope this inspires the many hibiscus lovers and growers in Southern California to strive to enjoy the same beautiful results for themselves. We encourage our members and fellow growers to enter the OC Fair Flower Show competition. There are still a few weeks left to enter the weekly competitions. You must register online by 2pm the day before the competition date: OC Fair Flower Show Entry Portal
August Meeting – Seal Beach Tropical Oasis
Our August 2021 meeting will be at the tropically themed home of Kenny Lam in Seal Beach. Ken has been a collector of palms, bromeliad, plumeria and ti plants for years. There are a variety of eye catching plants and trees at every turn.
Thank you for visiting the SCHS website
I would like to warmly welcome you to our society and website where we celebrate and enjoy the colorful world of hibiscus in Southern California. For those that grow exotic hibiscus we have all the inside scoops and expert hacks needed to avoid the challenging learning curve that comes with growing them. We think you will not find a better online resource for growing and caring of hibiscus anywhere. There is tons of great information here and recommend to check back often as we are continually adding more resources at your disposal as we learn more by the season.
A SUPER FRIENDLY AND FUN GROUP TO JOIN!
We are a relatively new and very friendly group of passionate people from all backgrounds and orientations. The SCHS meets monthly at grower’s homes and other tropically themed landscaped settings. You will be amazed at the beauty and positive influence hibiscus can put into your life!
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.
