Hibiscus is spectacular at Woombye
THE hibiscus flower is so remarkable that a growing following of individuals is dedicating free time to preserve its beauty.
And the public will be able to view 200 blooms on display at the annual Hibiscus Spectacular in Woombye this month.
Australian Hibiscus Society Sunshine Coast president Ted Herbert said just as every year, the event gave everyone a chance to be amazed by the jaw-dropping beauty.
"They're just a magnificent bloom, and the varieties are amazing," he said.
"There's over 100.
"People are forever propagating new types.
"It's just magnificent."
The annual affair draws much anticipation from growers and keen admirers, who come together to watch the judging of the blooms by veterans and first-timers.
"We encourage novices to bring along their blooms, we did it last year for the first time and it was a great success," the president said.
"It gives everyone the opportunity to share their flowers and their excitement with others."
Hibiscus Spectacular will be held at the Woombye School of Arts Hall on Saturday, May 12, and anyone can attend between 9am and 1.30pm with a gold-coin donation.
Mr Herbert believed people of all ages would enjoy the event.
