The hibiscus we know and love, hibiscus rosa-sinensis, is not native to Florida. It’s not even native to the United States! So how did it get here? How did the American Hibiscus Society begin? What about our own chapter? How did it get started?
Our President Beth Meehan will try to answer these questions and more as she presents a brief history of hibiscus rosa-sinensis. Plan to join us to learn more about our favorite plants!
