We welcome you to the exciting world of hibiscus!

Next SCHS Meeting – July 20

Our July meeting is one not to miss! Every year we all look forward to our annual meeting at Dr Curtis’ home in North Tustin. Just when you think it can’t get any better with close to 300 exotic hibiscus and dozens of mature plumeria trees it has. Dr Curtis has taken it to another level which we didn’t know was possible and has remodeled his backyard building in a covered porch and adding close to another hundred exotic hibiscus and many more plumeria trees. So just when you thought you had seen it all at Dr Curits’ property there is lots more to see than ever before. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn how to grow exotic hibiscus in the outdoors year round and how the plants grow when in given the proper conditions to get gorgeous profusions of oversized blooms.

But wait! We have another awesome surprise in store and a first for our society. We will be holding our first flower show there. We have expert growers and hibiscus flower show legends Todd and Janelle Alvis from the Red Stick Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society who will be here visiting us and assist us with what promises to be a really fun event. They bring with them decades of experience and passion so we are going to ratchet up the flower excitement level to new heights. Bring your blooms and get ready to take tons of photos and videos. This will be an epic event not seen in these parts before! 

Lunch will be provided as well as another legendary hibiscus raffle and auction.  Family and friends are always welcome so please spread the word and have them contact us to get an invite out to them as well. This is a perfect opportunity to bring anyone who is new to the world of exotic hibiscus and introduce them to these beautiful blooming machines! Please make plans to join us for a most memorable and exciting July Saturday. Please RSVP by Wed July 17.

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.
