We love our vendors, the Hibiscus Festival was created to bring beautiful plants (please note:  this is a plant festival named the Hibiscus Festival, that by no means indicates it is solely hibiscus) for you to take home . We have been lucky enough to introduce you to some of the finest independent growers in the state. Please meet some of our growers!  Stay tuned as the list grows.
