Do you know when to fertilize a potted hibiscus? Do you know how much to water it? Whether you have a green thumb or not, the Acadiana Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society invites everyone to their annual show and sale on May 20, 2012 at the Cathedral Carmel School Gym. They also encourage all military personnel (active or inactive) to come to the show with their military ID and receive a free plant as a way to say thank you for their service.

The chapter also has an ongoing project called the Fallen Hero Project in which local Acadiana area fallen service men and women are honored by naming a locally hybridized hibiscus bloom after them and presenting it to their families. So far, the Acadiana Chapter has honored four area Fallen Heroes.
