Auction Plants for September 2017 Meeting

Below are the five auction plants for our Sept 2017 meeting. Each plant is a very healthy and medium sized plant with multiple branches and are on their way to being fantastic bushes. In addition to the five auction plants below we will have five very large extra mature exotic hibiscus that we will give away or if more than one person is interested will auction off. Those are Midsummer Night, Deep Water, Slapstick, Sea of Tranquility and Maui Dancer. These five plants are so big that they might have trouble fitting in a car and should be planted either in ground or in very large pots. Whoever gets them will have plants with years of strong growth and are built like tanks.

Our First Video in a Series of Hibiscus How-To Instructional Videos

Root Pruning Screenshot

Did you know that if you do not root prune your potted hibiscus they will eventually die? Yes – they become so root bound that they will be unable to pull up enough nutrients to survive. You can continue to pot up your hibiscus into larger containers but at some point they become so big and heavy it is a challenge to move them around as needed. Our advice is to keep them in the size pots you desire and prune the roots instead. You will see a big difference in your plants performance as well as much increased longevity.

Our esteemed member Brad Daniels, “The Hibiscus Whisperer,” takes you on an interesting and informative journey covering all the particulars you will need to do the job right the first time. Sit back, relax and take in a valuable instructional video that will help you obtain an important skill needed to grow hibiscus successfully.
