Hibiscus Society Holds 31st Annual Show and Plant Sale

Jan. 23, 2009 – Hibiscus fanciers and growers are invited to the 31st annual Hibiscus Show and Plant Sale at 1 p.m., on Sunday, Feb. 22, at the Austin "Babe" Monsanto Marine Terminal at the Sub Base. "A pretty hibiscus is like a pretty smile," says Mario Francis, St. Thomas Hibiscus Society president.
Francis urges anyone with a bloom to bring it to the terminal between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. to be entered in the show. The freeshow will have plants for sale and there will be a raffle.
Francis was elected president for another term at the society's annual meeting in January, where Clement "Cain" Magras and Johanny Magras were honored as "2008 Hibiscus Growers of the Year." Amanda Morrison, age 12, earned the "Young Hibiscus Enthusiast of the Year," and John Gifft was presented with the "Nurseryman of the Year" award.
For further information, call Francis at 643-0402 or 774-3745.
