It is after much discussion and careful analysis that the board of directors has decided to suspend all SCHS events and meetings until further notice due to the Covid 19 virus. The health and well being of our members and their loved ones is our utmost priority and with the escalating spread and impacts now being experienced locally and abroad we feel it is best to side on preventive caution at this time.
The Bridges to Aloha event has been cancelled as well and we will not have any meetings for the months of April and May. If anything changes we will let you know. Please be vigilant during the coming several months as we might experience some significant disruptions to our daily lives. We pray that you will all stay healthy and safe.
The silver lining is that growing and loving your hibiscus has no virus risk and can promote good health too!
Thank you for your understanding.
The SCHS Crew



Thank you for visiting the Southern California Hibiscus Society website.

Darren and his beautiful hibiscus 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. We are working hard to put some great resources at your disposal here so thanks for your patience as we improve our website.


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.  


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.
