Aloha! Hibiscus Lady Nursery is located in Waialua (Mokulēʻia) on the North Shore of the island of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. The nursery began in 1999. 99% of the hibiscus that we sell have been created (hybridized) here at the nursery. People who have our plants have purchased them directly from us.
We welcome visitors but ask that you give us a call before coming out: (808) 637-9995. In general we are closed all day Saturdays as well as Sunday mornings. There are occasional weekdays when we might not be here too, so do call. For those of you ordering plants to be shipped to the U. S. mainland, we ship via Fedex 2nd Day Air on Tuesdays and you receive your plants on Thursday!
If the weather in much of the mainland U.S. gets really cold, we only ship to states where the weather is above freezing. We resume shipping to 49 of the 50 states (excluding Arizona) once the weather has again warmed up in the spring!
We hybridize (cross pollinate) all winter long and plant out many hundreds of seeds. About the 1 year later we begin to get first blooms on our seedlings and we end up keeping about 2-4% for further evaluation. Eventually we keep about half of these to add to our fine stable of Hibiscus Lady hibiscus! When we select our "keepers" we are looking for both "gorgeous" and "unusual", and in addition to beauty we also have created some hybrids with a light, sweet scent!
All of the hibiscus that we sell are grown from cuttings - none are grafted. Why? It is not uncommon for grafted plants to send out suckers from their rootstock, and this can take over and eventually kill the graft. This will never happen with our Hibiscus Lady "own root" plants. Our plants are healthy and well rooted before we sell them and have been growing for about a year from the day the cuttings were taken.
Our nursery is divided into 2 sections - plants available for sale to Oʻahu customers and a Certified area where plants are grown to be shipped to the mainland U.S. and to Hawaiʻi's neighbor islands. This website displays plants from our Certified area.
We have many additional plants not shown on this website which are available for our Oʻahu customers only.
