Do you have some extraordinarily beautiful hibiscus that you think might be award winners? Or do you just want to dress up your yard with some of the newest and most sought-after cultivars of hibiscus.? You can do either or both Sunday, May 29, at Ursuline Academy (2635 State St., 861-9150) during the New Orleans chapter of the American Hibiscus Society’s 14th annual show and sale.
Growers can enter flowers for judging from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. The public can attend an exhibition of the flowers entered as well as a sale of hibiscus from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Admission is free.
In addition to plants, the show — one of the largest among AHS chapters in the country — will include special fertilizers for hibiscus, specialty soils, books and growing information. Bring cash or checks to pay for items. No credit cards will be accepted.
Free parking is available in a lot on the Nashville Avenue side of Ursuline Academy near the entrance to the show. Those entering flowers for judging should bring them to the Lion’s Den inside the school.
