Hibiscus plant sale set for Nov. 16

By Staff | Nov 6, 2014

The James E. Hendry Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society will hold a hybrid hibiscus plant sale from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 16, at the Salvation Army Building, 10291 McGregor Blvd, Fort Myers.

This is the first time the organizations will hold a plant sale only.

The beautiful tropical hibiscus you’ve always wanted but could not find at commerical chain stores will be for sale. More than 300 hybrid hibiscus will be available in quarts, $10, and gallons, $15. These beautiful plants are being provided by Exotic Hibiscus Nursery. Expert growing advice will be available during the sale from past national American Hibiscus Society President and hybridizer Curt Sinclair.

These hibiscus are grown on their own roots and are easy to maintain. These exotic hybrid plants grown by Curt Sinclair have blooms over 8 inches and are in just about every color of the rainbow! Besides reds and yellows, there will be blues, greens, browns and many blooms with up to five colors!! You will not believe your eyes. The comment heard most is “Wow, are these real?”

Members of this hibiscus chapter will be available for any questions. There will be information available on how to care for hibiscus, plus books and fertilizer for sale.

Admission and parking are free.

This is a good opportunity for Southwest Floridians to add to their hybrid hibiscus collection.

This plant sale only will be the first of its kind for this chapter. The society meets at The Salvation Army Building, 10291 McGregor Blvd on the second Sunday of each month at 1:30 p.m. Anyone interested is invited to attend the next meeting Sunday, Jan. 11, at 1:30 p.m. Visit www.hendrychapterahs.com for more information.
