Lone Star Chapter hosts Hibiscus show

Hundreds of exotic hibiscus blooms will be displayed by the Lone Star Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, August 18th at the Bellaire Community Center, 7008 South Rice Avenue in Bellaire.

Named variety hibiscus will be for sale. Blooms will be displayed representing varieties of the tropical “Chinese” hibiscus that grow well in Texas. Admission is free.

Visitors will receive the free leaflet “How to Grow Better Hibiscus Near The Texas Coast.”

To raise funds, the chapter will sell landscape and exotic hibiscus plants, the internationally acclaimed Hibiscus Handbook, and the Space City Chapter’s water-soluble fertilizer, 18-10-28, formulated especially for hibiscus.

The Lone Star Chapter meets every fourth Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., March through October, at the Garden Center in Hermann Park. Visitors are most welcome.
