The creator of this glorious mini hybrid hibiscus is Jill Coryell, aka The Hibiscus Lady. She named it in honor of Joe Friedman of Ohio, a husband, father and businessman who played one the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz.
I visited Jill at her Waialua Nursery on the North Shore and was stunned by her creations. I want to go back!
Jill is a beautiful soul with an interesting story. You can read about her and her hibiscus “art” in my Moonlighting column in MidWeek next week.
