Extreme Weather Alert for So Cal Hibiscus Growers

The weather in Southern California is going to go from summer to winter in less than two days starting Friday Nov 6th. Exotic hibiscus do not like sudden and drastic changes with inputs. This will be a stress for any established plants and if you have any small and tender hibiscus you might want to place them indoors or under a protective area. We advise to watch them closely. This time of year this can happen here so be alert and keep an eye on your hibiscus. The amount you water and your current soil mix might suddenly not be what they need in a few weeks. Remember the Golden Rule: what happens now will show up in 2-3 weeks. Please check our Pro Growers Section for lots of helpful growing information.



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.
