The Conrad-Sunrise Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society will meet on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Mounts Botanical Garden main meeting hall on Military Trail in West Palm Beach, just south of Belvedere Road. The featured speaker will be Dawn Conrad on “The Hybridization of the Hibiscus.”
Conrad was raised in a gardening family. Both of her parents were well-known for their many years of involvement with the activities of the Mounts Botanical Garden and the American Hibiscus Society. She began learning about growing hibiscus from her parents when she was just seven years old.
Today, Conrad has several registered hybrids with the International Hibiscus Society. She is a recipient of the prestigious award for “Hybrid Bloom of the Year” and has lectured on hybridization to many groups, locally and nationally.
The general public is invited to attend. Those in attendance will have a unique opportunity to learn critical skills for growing and cultivating hibiscus from one of the leading experts in South Florida. Attendees will also have the opportunity to share their questions with Conrad and other society members.
A selection of refreshments will be available. Bring a friend and enjoy a great evening of socialization, fun and learning. For more information, visit www.conradsunrisehibiscus.com.
