We welcome you to the exciting world of hibiscus!

Next SCHS Meeting – August 25

The SCHS 2019 August Meeting will be a very special event for our members as we will have exclusive access to one of the top So Cal plumeria grower’s private plant inventory. Diem Nguyen is an expert plumeria grower and has hundreds of rooted varieties for sale at his home. Both smaller and larger plants are available with many 2 and 5 gallon potted plumeria and select larger varieties ready to make your landscaping pop with gorgeous color. Diem is the only local grower that has many rare Thai plumeria. Plumeria are probably the best companion plants you can have growing simultaneously with hibiscus. In Southern California plumeria give dappled shade during the hot summer months for that perfect balance and in winter lose their leaves allowing for maximum sunlight and warmth when our hibiscus need it the most. Plumeria also do fine being fed the same fertilizers as we give to our hibiscus.



This will be a potluck lunch so please plan on bringing something yummy to eat! And just when you thought you are already in plant heaven we will be holding another amazing exotic hibiscus raffle and auction. So mark your calendar now so you don’t miss this rare opportunity that does not come around often.


This is a Sunday event so please be aware of the departure from our usual Saturday meetings. We will be sending out more information closer to the event date as to how the sales will be conducted. This will be a limited engagement of 100 people max so RSVP early to get your spot. Again don’t miss this fantastic opportunity!

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!

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.
