Meetings and Events
Our monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month (except for July and August) at 7PM in the Auditorium of Mounts Botanical Garden.
At our monthly themed meetings, we learn interesting tips and information about growing tropical hibiscus. Topics include such things as grafting, repotting, pest control, and much more. Members can also bring blooms to compete in our monthly mini shows, with the winners bringing home new tropical hibiscus as prizes. Following the presentation, we enjoy refreshments and socializing.
Visitors are welcome to attend!

May 2022 Monthly Meeting
Our May meeting will take place on May 18th at 7pm and the topic will be rootstock. Don Bernard will be giving the program and providing the materials. He has asked us if we could bring any extra rootstock we may have. You can bring Pride of Hankins or any other varieties if you don’t have Pride of Hankins. This is an important part, if you are planning to graft any of those beautiful varieties. If you do not have extra rootstock cuttings it is okay, we will have plenty to share. This will get you ready for when we have our grafting session.
We want to inform you all that we are not hosting an April Monthly Meeting, due to the Spring Plant sale being the same week. Please come out an support us by buying hibiscus during the sale – we hope to see you there!
