The object of our society is to spread the word about the beautiful tropical HIBISCUS


We have meetings in September, October, November, January, February, March and April on the second Sunday of the month. The meetings are held at at 1:30 PM at the Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council building located at 2166 Virginia Ave. Fort Myers, FL.


We provide education and advice on PLANTING, FERTILIZING, PRUNING, PROPAGATING, HYBRIDIZING, and CONTROLLING PESTS. There are several door prizes at every meeting.


We also conduct special events, sales, and educational field trips. A festive Holiday Party is held in December, and we have a pot luck picnic with a learning activity in May. Our BIG 70th Annual Hibiscus Show and Sale will be held on April 29, 2023 at the First Assembly of God, 4701 Summerlin Road (near Colonial) from 1 PM – 4 PM.  Admission and parking are free.


Members receive The Seed Pod, the AHS quarterly magazine and the Hendry Herald, our award winning monthly newsletter which is filled with interesting articles and good advice on growing hibiscus.


We are a fun and friendly group and welcome new members!  Plan to attend one of our meetings to learn more about our group and the beautiful hibiscus!
